DBU Selected by the Texas Education Agency as Nominee for 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. Districts are eligible for up to $70,000 (per resident) to help pay for residents' salaries, graduate school tuition, certification exams, etcetera.

School districts are responsible for completing and submitting the grant proposal, and DBU will partner with districts to design, customize and implement successful grants. The grants will be awarded in January 2020 and will run through August 31, 2021.
