The AASA Educational Administration Scholarship was created in 1949 to provide incentives, recognition
and financial assistance to outstanding graduate students in school administration who intend to make the school superintendency a career. AASA selects recipients on the basis of their experience and excellence in school administration, personal essays and recommendations from university faculty.
