$10,000 AND $2,000 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS
Deadline: September 1, 2019
Sponsored by Curriculum Associates
As the Latinx population continues to grow in the United States, the need for more Latinx school system administrators is greater than ever. By the year 2025, it is projected that Latinx children will make up 25 percent of the school-age population. Latinos are the largest minority population in the country; however, the number of advancement opportunities for aspiring Latinx school leaders is disproportionately small.
ALAS is offering a $10,000 scholarship and a $2,000 scholarship this year thanks to our partner Curriculum Associates who is sponsoring the ALAS scholarships for the fifth consecutive year.
Curriculum Associates is a leading educational technology and publishing company with a mission to make classrooms better places for students and teachers. That’s why, for years, Curriculum Associates has partnered with the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents to help further their mission of “identifying, recruiting, developing and advancing Latinx school administrators in order to improve the educational accomplishments of Latinx youth.” Our continued support includes a $10,000 and $2,000 scholarship that goes to aspiring superintendents.
ALAS recognizes Latinx administrators for their leadership by providing assistance toward an advanced degree in education. The top recipient will receive a one-time $10,000 scholarship award and the runner-up recipient will receive a one-time $2,000 scholarship award. The scholarships will be made payable to the recipients’ institution of higher learning and the recipients will be presented the award during the Awards Banquet at the 16th Annual ALAS Education Summit in Orlando, FL.
If you are an aspiring Latinx superintendent currently enrolled in, or have been accepted in to, an advanced degree program in education in a college or university, take advantage of this opportunity to secure a scholarship.
- You must be a current dues-paying member of ALAS to apply.
- You must be currently enrolled in or accepted into an advanced degree program in education in a college or university with the goal of becoming a superintendent.
