AASA Educational Administration Scholarship Award

Scholarship Description

AASA’s Educational Administration Scholarships were created in 1949 to provide incentive, honor and financial assistance to outstanding graduate students in school administration who intend to make the school superintendency a career.

The scholarships in the amount of $2,500 each for outstanding graduate students are named for each of AASA’s seven former executive directors. Recipients are honored at AASA’s National Conference on Education and a $500 travel allowance is provided.
