The Mary Alice Price Scholarship

The Mary Alice Price Scholarship

The Mary Alice Price Scholarship, formerly the Future Superintendents Academy Scholarship, was renamed to honor Mary Alice Price, President of the LEAF, Inc. Board of Directors for her numerous years of service to The Council and dedication to education.

The Selection Process

The Mary Alice Price Scholarship is a needs-based scholarship awarded annually to an individual who has been accepted in the Future Superintendents Academy to cover the cost of tuition for the program. One scholarship, in the amount of $2,350, is awarded.

The Future Superintendents Academy is a comprehensive program to prepare high level administrators aspiring to become superintendents in the next few years. The program requires a year-long commitment, beginning in July 2015 and concluding in May 2016. Participants are required to attend a summer institute and eight weekend sessions throughout the year. The program includes critical topics relevant to the superintendency such as communications; change, systems and planning; governance; financial leadership; human resources; instructional leadership; and the search and interview process.
