CaSPA Equity Scholarship

Download Application Form


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.
