SCHOLARSHIPS

2017 ALAS
$10,000 AND $2,000 SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS

Deadline Extended to September 15!

Sponsored by Curriculum Associates

 

As the Latino population continues to grow in the United States, the need for more Latino school system administrators is greater than ever. By the year 2025, it is projected that Latino 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 Latino 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 third consecutive year.

ALAS recognizes Latino 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 14th Annual ALAS Education Summit in Houston, Texas on Friday, October 13, 2017.

If you are an aspiring Latino 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.

ELIGIBILITY

  1. You must be a current dues-paying member of ALAS to apply.
  2. 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.
