The Public Education Foundation recognises the pivotal role that principals and education leaders play in transforming student outcomes and bolstering education standards.
Three scholarship opportunities are offered for mid-career Principals to ‘reflect, refocus and recharge’ through professional education programs at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Applications for the 2020 Harvard Principals Scholarship are now open and will close on February 11, 2020.
Applications for the Teachers Mutual Bank Emerging Leaders Scholarship is also open and will close on February 11, 2020. This scholarship provides emerging education leaders across Australia (director position or equivalent) to undertake a short professional leadership program at Harvard Kennedy School in the USA. The Scholarship provides a successful applicant with the opportunity to explore modes of collaborative working and to identify opportunities for innovative leadership.
Harvard made me think, ask questions and formulate how and why school transformation can be successful. Through workshops, case studies and often rich dialogue with educators from around the world, Harvard provided opportunities to construct purposeful meaning about planning schools for the future. I remember the saying that the scholarship will be life-changing – so true.”
