    Paul Ziebarth Memorial Scholarship

    Superintendent Paul Ziebarth was a respected member of the QPS and the broader community. As an esteemed colleague of the Executive Challenge Academy alumni, Paul took pride in maintaining a personal and passionate contribution to the continued growth of the ECA. He was part of the design team for the Masterclass and The Hague Live Case Study programs which were introduced in 2016.

    Sadly, Paul passed away before he was able to experience the results of his hard work and commitment.

    In deciding how to best recognise and perpetuate Paul’s leadership work, we considered a number of possibilities. His closest colleagues reminded us of Paul’s dedication to what he called “the young folk”. In honour of his commitment to early career leaders, we now commit the Foundations for Leadership Program in Paul’s memory by offering scholarships in his name.
