CaSPA Equity Scholarship

Download Application Form

Introduction

Part of  CaSPA's charter is to promote Excellence in Leadership.  This is obviously an option for those Principals who readily have the opportunity to partake in relevant formal study to improve their leadership.
It is appreciated however that not all school communities have equal access to the resources to support their principal in attending such courses. The CaSPA Board is offering an annual scholarship  - currently to the value of $5000 to assist a principal to undertake further study in Educational Leadership who would otherwise have difficulty in doing so, due to lack of financial support, to undertake such study.

Nomination Protocols

Nominations for the CaSPA Equity Scholarship will be open to all Secondary School Principals working within the Catholic Education Sector who are members, through their State/Territory Principals' Association, of Catholic Secondary Principals Australia [CaSPA]. Such nominations, together with appropriate documentations detailing why the nominee would have difficulty accessing Study in Educational Leadership, will be made to the Executive of the Catholic Principals' Association in each respective State and Territory and will address the Award Selection Criteria as outlined.

State and Territory Associations will evaluate all nominations and will forward the most deserving to the Catholic Secondary Principals Australia Board for consideration.
The Board, comprising a Director from each State and Territory Catholic Jurisdiction, will make the final recommendation for the CaSPA Travelling Scholarship.

  • This is an annual award and is not tied to the biennial conference.
  • Nominations are to reach the CaSPA Executive Officer no later than October 30 each year so that a decision can be made at the November Board meeting.
  • Current CaSPA Board members are ineligible for nomination.
