Scholar Leader Awards
The Department of Educational Leadership and Higher Education sponsors a doctoral student celebration during the spring semester every year. The event includes a guest speaker, and the department selects a doctoral student for the Scholar Leader Award. The awardee receives a monetary award that can support their research. The student who receives the award has written a dissertation that will immediately impact the field of educational leadership. Please make an online donation to ensure we can continue to support our doctoral students. Your donation will have a tremendous impact on our ability to fund this important initiative.
