Scholarships for COSA Licensure candidates

We know that working toward an administrative license or advanced degree is a big investment of time, energy and financial resources. We are here to help. COSA pledges to keep tuition below the mean cost of existing licensure programs in the state, and the rate is always locked in as of the candidate's admission date. Candidates enrolled in one of our degree programs are eligible for financial aid through Concordia University-Chicago. For other opportunities, see below.

COSA-OASP Aspiring Superintendents
Highlights: Ed.S./ProAL • diverse candidates • up to $10,000 per year • deadline May 31, 2022

The Oregon Administrator Scholars Program and the Coalition of Oregon School Administrators are teaming up to provide an unprecedented opportunity for aspiring superintendents to earn both their Professional Administrator license and their Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree, with generous scholarship and mentorship support. This opportunity is available to BIPOC administrators who hold a current Oregon Principal license and plan to continue their leadership path toward a superintendency.

Selected applicants will receive up to $10,000 in each of the program's two years for tuition and related expenses. COSA will provide 24/7 mentoring, as well as the opportunity to participate in its suite of equity and superintendency-focused support offerings. Successful candidates will participate in a cohort model while moving through the program, which includes 24 credits of course work and 6 credits of internship. All 30 credits in the Ed.S. program may be transferred into one of two doctoral programs – an Ed.D. or Ph.D. degree program. If you are currently enrolled in COSA’s ProAL or Ed.S. programs, you may still be eligible for the scholarship. The deadline is May 31, 2022.
