  • Penn State’s American Indian Leadership program awarded new grant for Principals

    Dear Editor,

    Penn State’s College of Education has received funding in excess of $960,000 to offer new graduate fellowships to American Indian and Alaska Native students who are interested in becoming school principals.

    The initiative, titled Principals for Student Success (PSS), allows participants to earn a master’s degree in Educational Leadership with principalship certification. The primary purpose is to prepare American Indian and Alaska Natives, over a four-year period, to be effective school principals in schools that serve significant numbers of Indian students.

Join the online community forum celebrating Native American Culture, Pow Wows, tribes, music, art, and history.
