Leon Bradley Scholarship Program

The Leon Bradley Scholarship Program is established to encourage more minorities or persons of color to enter the field to teaching and school leadership. AASPA believes that it is of benefit for all students to experience diversity among the educators who serve as role models for our students. Thus, the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) will annually award up to two scholarships to assist a minority college student seeking their initial teaching certification and/or endorsement and up to two scholarships to assist a minority graduate student seeking his/her administrative credential.

  • One scholarship will be for $2000 granted for the student's final year, which includes student teaching.

  • One scholarship will be for $1000 granted for a minority paraprofessional career-changer in his/her final year of teacher preparation.

  • Up to two scholarships will be for $1000 granted for a minority graduate student who is pursuing a school administrator credential.

Checks will be sent directly to the college or university to verify that the applicant is a full-time student and is pursuing a prescribed course of study for initial teacher certification and/or endorsement before applying any money to the costs.

These scholarships will be awarded to a student graduating in 2016.

  • Any monies not used for tuition can be applied to any other university-based expenses the student may incur.

  • Application materials will be posted on the AASPA website on January 1, 2015 and must be submitted online by May 29, 2015.

  • A letter from the Dean of Education or designated representative, a letter from a character reference and a transcript must be uploaded no later than the application deadline on Friday, May 29, 2015.
