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 (HGSE).  These are:

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

Applications for these scholarships have now closed.

Due to COVID-19 GSE-Harvard do not have these courses currently scheduled, but hope to resume face-to-face opportunities for these residential programs mid-late 2022.   The overseas travel component of these scholarships will not be supported until international travel is deemed to be safe.

“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.”
