American Association of School Personnel Administrators
Leon Bradley Scholarship Program

The Leon Bradley Scholarship Program was established to encourage more minorities or persons of color to enter the field of teaching and school leadership. The American Association of School Personnel Administrators (AASPA) believes that it is beneficial for all students to experience diversity among the educators who serve as role models for our students. Thus, AASPA will annually award up to two scholarships to assist a minority college student seeking his/her 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 $2,500 granted to a minority student in his/her final year of teacher preparations, which includes student teaching.
  • One scholarship will be for $1,500 granted to a minority paraprofessional career-changer in his/her final year of teacher preparation, which includes student teaching.
  • Up to two scholarships will be for $1,500 granted to a minority graduate student who is pursuing a school administrator credential.

A request 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 OR is enrolled as a student pursing administrative certification and/or endorsement before applying any money to the costs. These scholarships will be awarded to a student graduating in 2019.* 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 February 1st, 2018 and must be submitted online by Wednesday, May 31, 2018 to [email protected].
  • In addition to the application, a letter from your designated college representative (dean, advisor, professor, counselor); a letter from a character reference (pastor, volunteer organization, teacher, manager) and an unofficial transcript must be included with this application or emailed to [email protected] no later than the application deadline on Wednesday, May 31, 2018. All emailed files should be labeled with your last name.

Applicants must reside in one of the following states/provinces or be currently matriculating at a college or university within these states/provinces: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Providences of Manitoba and Ontario Canada.

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.
