Opportunities for Education Leaders

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 have now closed. Applications for the 2021 Harvard Principals Scholarship open at the end of 2020. Follow us on social media for updates.  

  • The Teachers Mutual Bank Principals Scholarship
  • The Harvard Club of Australia Principals Scholarship
  • The Public Education Foundation Principals Scholarship

Applications for the Teachers Mutual Bank Emerging Leaders Scholarship  for 2020 are also closed. 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.”
