Leon Bradley Scholarship - American Association of School Personnel Administrators

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.
