DSAG Endowed Scholarship Fund

The Dean’s Superintendents Advisory Group (DSAG) established an endowment in January 2013 to provide scholarships to USC 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 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 with larger scholarship awards.

Why DSAG Matters


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.
