Opportunities for Education Leaders

The Public Education Foundation recognises the pivotal role that principals and education leaders play in transforming student outcomes and bolstering education standards.

Three scholarship opportunities are offered for mid-career Principals to ‘reflect, refocus and recharge’ through professional education programs at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.  These are:

  • The Teachers Mutual Bank Education Scholarship
  • The Harvard Club of Australia Education Scholarship
  • The Public Education Foundation Principals Scholarship

The Teachers Mutual Bank Executive Leadership Scholarship provides a scholarship for Senior Education Executives to undertake a short professional leadership program at Harvard Kennedy School in the USA.  The Scholarship provides a successful applicant with the opportunity to explore modes of collaborative working and to identify opportunities for innovative leadership.

Applications for these scholarships will open in mid November 2017, for travel and study in 2018.

“Harvard made me think, ask questions and formulate how and why school transformation can be successful.  Through workshops, case studies and often rich dialogue with educators from around the world, Harvard provided opportunities to construct purposeful meaning about planning schools for the future. I remember the saying that the scholarship will be life-changing – so true.”
