The Frederic Hudson
Scholarship Program

The Hudson Coach Certification program was created based on Frederic Hudson and Pam McLean's belief that, in order to survive and thrive in modern life, adults need support navigating change and development. The Frederic Hudson Scholarship Program seeks to make that support accessible to more people.

Our Mission

Hudson Institute of Coaching exists to foster growth in individuals and organizations to build a more conscious world. The Frederic Hudson Scholarship Program supports this mission by reducing financial barriers in order to expand access to Hudson's world-renowned Coach Certification Program (HCC). HCC is a catalyst for powerful personal and professional growth in participants, and empowers them to be that catalyst for others through coaching. The scholarship aims to make this transformative program accessible to lifelong learners for whom the cost would be prohibitive. We know from experience what happens next: these newly inspired individuals return to their communities, creating great impact and contributing to a more conscious world by supporting the development of those around them.
