Ayers Leadership Fellows

Just as important as having good teachers in the classroom, schools need good administrators as well. Whether it be in personal and ethical leadership, visionary leadership, learning-focused leadership or organizational leadership, fellows will be challenged to bring skills back to their districts to help them become highly effective leaders in their schools.

Ayers Leadership Fellows program at Lipscomb University

The Ayers Foundation has made scholarships available for these aspiring school leaders, and Ayers Leadership Fellows will be selected from a pool of applicants based on merit and innovative partnerships with their individual school districts. 

Ayers Leadership Fellows will earn a Master of Education (M.Ed.) or Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree in Educational Leadership at Lipscomb University and an administrative license in the state of Tennessee. Fellows will engage in field experiences and direct mentoring relationships with current educational leaders, and will be engaged in coursework designed to enhance researched-based best-practice leadership skills. A maximum of 15 Fellows will be selected to begin in August 2014.
