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. 

AASPA will annually award up to two scholarships to assist a minority candidate seeking his/her initial teaching certification endorsement.  Each scholarship will be given in the amount of $3,500.00.  Candidates will be eligible for the award if they are in their final year of completing certification/endorsement requirements, including student teaching if applicable.
