WGU Aspiring School Principals Scholarships

Western Governors University is pleased to offer the WGU Aspiring School Principals Scholarships. These scholarships are designed to help aspiring school principals attend college online to move into the leadership position of principal.

Who Should Apply
- Individuals interested in the M.S. in Educational Leadership

About the Scholarship
A WGU Aspiring Principals Scholarship is valued up to $2,000. The scholarship will be credited to your account at the rate of $500 per six-month term, renewable each year for up to a maximum of four terms. You will be required to reapply for the scholarship each year for renewal.
Multiple scholarships will be awarded. Each scholarship will be awarded based upon a candidate's academic record, readiness for online study, and current competency, plus other considerations. WGU's competency-based education approach makes it possible for students to accelerate their program, but the scholarship is based on a reasonable experience of two years to completion. The actual time to completion will depend on the incoming student's prior experience, academic background, and time commitment to study.

Eligibility Requirements
- Must possess a bachelor's degree and valid teaching license
- Must submit official transcripts of all prior college work
- Complete an application
- Satisfactorily complete the WGU Readiness Assessment
- Be officially admitted to WGU
- Interview with a WGU Scholarship Counselor prior to the award decision.

NOTE: This scholarship program is designed for new students only.
If you are selected to receive the scholarship, you will be required to read the WGU Student Handbook and agree to and understand the tuition and refund policies. You will also be required to sign a WGU Scholarship Agreement before monies are awarded.

Tuition for a six-month term is $2,790, less the $500 per term scholarship. (There is an additional fee for the in-school practicum requirement.) To maintain your eligibility to receive the scholarship monies, you must maintain a 100% Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) rating through the duration of your degree program. You will also be required to reapply for the scholarship at the end of the second six-month term of each year for renewal. If you have maintained the required eligibility, your scholarship will be renewed.

If you would like to discuss the WGU Aspiring Principals Scholarship program or WGU's M.S. in Educational Leadership degree program before submitting an application for the scholarship, feel free to speak with a WGU Enrollment Counselor toll-free at 1-866-225-5948.
