Xero Leadership Scholarship Terms and Conditions


This Xero leadership scholarship campaign (Campaign) is conducted on behalf of Xero (NZ) Limited (NZ company number 4123758) (Xero) and is open from 1 August 2019 until 11:59 pm on 28 August 2019 (Campaign Period). By registering for this Campaign, an entrant will be deemed to have accepted these terms and conditions. 

About the Scholarship: 

Xero is proposing to award two scholarships (each valued at NZD$5,000) to contribute towards the cost of enrolling in The Icehouse Leadership Development Programme (Programme) during the 2019 or 2020 intake (each a Scholarship and together with the Scholarships). The Programme is run for senior business leaders by The Icehouse Limited (Icehouse) and the total fees for the Programme are approximately NZD$11,000. The Scholarships cannot be put towards any other products or services of Icehouse, and cannot be transferred to others, exchanged for cash or any other benefits. 


To be eligible to receive a Scholarship (Eligible Entrant), entrants must:

  • be a New Zealand resident with a management role in a business which is located in New Zealand prior to and during the Campaign Period; 

  • satisfy the minimum criteria for acceptance into the Programme set by Icehouse from time to time; 

  • register via the “New Registration” button on this website https://www.eiseverywhere.com/xeroleadershipscholarshipsnz at any time during the Campaign Period; and

  • comply with these terms and conditions. 

Selection and announcement of winners: 

By no later than 30 September 2019, Xero will select, in its absolute discretion and in consultation with Icehouse, two (2) Eligible Entrants to each receive one (1) Scholarship (Candidates). To select the Candidates, Xero will assess the extent to which the Eligible Entrants satisfy the Icehouse core criteria for acceptance into the Programme, in addition to any other criteria that Xero and Icehouse consider appropriate. 

The Candidates will be notified by phone, or using any other contact details the Candidates have provided Xero. If Xero has made a reasonable attempt to contact a Candidate, and they have not responded within three business days, their Scholarship will be forfeited and Xero will select another Eligible Entrant to be the replacement Candidate. If in Xero’s opinion there are no suitable Eligible Entrants to receive the Scholarships, Xero reserves the right to award either one or none of the Scholarships and to reopen or extend the Campaign.

To redeem the Scholarship, the selected Candidates must continue to satisfy Icehouse’s minimum criteria for acceptance into the Programme and comply with all other terms and conditions set by Icehouse from time to time. The Candidates must redeem the Scholarships within six months of the date on which the Candidates are announced by enrolling for any Programme starting between 1 September 2019 and 31 September 2020. 

Xero’s decisions on all matters relating to the Scholarships (including eligibility of entrants, registration of entrants, and selection of Candidates) will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.  In the event of any dispute, Xero’s decision is final.


Xero does not warrant that the Scholarships will cover the cost of the Programme, meet the Candidates’ requirements, or that they will be suitable for any particular purpose. To avoid doubt, all implied conditions or warranties are excluded in so far as is permitted by law, including (without limitation) warranties of merchantability and fitness for purpose.
