DSAG Endowed Scholarship Fund

DSAG SCholarship Winners

The Dean’s Superintendents Advisory Group (DSAG) established an endowment in January 2013 to provide scholarships to Rossier EdD candidates who aspire to superintendency. Scholarships are awarded annually to three outstanding members of the EdD student community. Recipients of the DSAG Endowed Scholarship Fund are recognized at the annual DSAG Awards Dinner held in Monterey, California.

Your Participation Counts

Through the generous participation of DSAG members and donors, the endowment has grown considerably in the last two years. With more than 200 members in DSAG, the goal is to raise $500,000 for the endowment by 2017. Annual gifts help by growing the endowment, ultimately supporting more students over time.

California educators are being asked to meet the highest standards while being funded at the lowest levels in America. To make a difference for the students, we need leaders trained to transform education in urban schools.

DSAG Endowed Scholarship Honor Roll

Through the generous participation of DSAG members and donors, the endowment has grown considerably in the last five years. In 2017 we achieved our initial goal of raising $500,000 for the endowment. Our new goal is to raise $1,000,000 by 2022. Annual gifts help by growing the endowment, ultimately supporting more students over time.
