North Billerica, MA, June 4, 2021
To support the professional advancement of Latino administrators, Curriculum Associates has partnered with the Association of Latino Administrators and Superintendents (ALAS) for the seventh consecutive year to sponsor the ALAS Scholarship Award. This award, which provides a $10,000 scholarship to support the continuing education of an ALAS member, is now accepting applications through September 30, 2021.
“We believe the best way to support our Latino youth and their communities is through education,” said Maria Armstrong, executive director of ALAS. “This is why at ALAS we focus on developing the leadership capacities of Latino educators so they can drive positive change in their schools and districts. This scholarship provides an amazing opportunity to help an ALAS member build their leadership skills and advance their career in order to best serve our youth and communities. We are grateful for the support of Curriculum Associates, which has been a strong advocate for our Latino-serving leaders and the students they serve.”
All ALAS members who are seeking an advanced degree program in education with the goal of becoming a superintendent are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be currently enrolled in or accepted into an advanced degree program in education and must provide a completed scholarship form, personal statement, resume, biography, and three letters of recommendation to be considered. The 2021 award recipient will be honored during the awards banquet at the ALAS National Annual Education Summit in October 2021.
“ALAS is a true leader in helping to develop, support, and advance Latino administrators across the country while being an advocate for the Latino students these educators serve,” said Claudia Salinas, vice president of English learning at Curriculum Associates. “We are proud to continue our longstanding partnership with ALAS, an organization so like-minded to our own, to support rising district leaders who are already making such a difference in the schools and communities they serve.”
