  • Scholarship Description
  • The Leon Bradley Scholarship Program is established to encourage more minorities or persons of color to enter the teaching profession. AASPA believes that it is of benefit for all students to experience diversity among the teachers who serve as role models for our students. Thus, the American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) will annually award two scholarships to assist a minority college student seeking their initial teaching certification and/or endorsement. One scholarship will be for $2,000 granted for the student's final year, which includes student teaching. The second scholarship will be for $1,000 granted for a minority paraprofessional career-changer in his/her final year of teacher preparation. 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. Any monies not used for tuition can be applied to any other university-based expenses the student may incur.
