DBU Awarded the Texas Education Agency Principal Residency Grant


DBU's Master of Educational Leadership program was selected as one of only nine from universities state-wide to partner with public districts and charter schools on the Texas Education Agency 2020-2021 Principal Residency Grant, Cycle 3.

This grant program seeks to provide districts with an opportunity to build strong campus leaders and help support internal leadership through principal residencies. Each eligible district can request funding up for 10 full-time, year-long principal residents to learn and serve on Texas campuses. Residents are eligible for up to $70,000 (per district) to help pay for residents' salary, graduate school tuition, certification exams, etcetera.

School districts are responsible for completing and submitting the grant proposal, and DBU is willing to collaborate with districts in order to do so effectively. Additionally, schools are required to partner with a grant-approved Principal Certification University, as well as identify potential principal leadership candidates that have not started in an Educational Leadership program. The grant application is due to the Texas Education Agency Document Center on November 12, no later than 5:00 pm.

For more information on how to partner with Dallas Baptist University on this unique opportunity, contact DBU's Dorothy M. Bush College of Education at 214-333-5217 or email larry@dbu.edu.
