How to Apply to the Teacher Leadership Program

All candidates for admission to the Teacher Leadership Program (AGS or EdM) must submit the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) online application. The usual application fee has been waived for this program. If you are applying for a specific scholarship (such as the Jewish Day School Fellowship or the ICEF Fellowship), you can indicate that by selecting the appropriate name under the “Concentration” menu.

Please note that not all sections of the GSAS application are necessary for your application to the Teacher Leadership Program to be considered complete. Only the following sections of the GSAS online application are required:

  • Personal Information

  • Program Information

  • Resume (see details below)

  • Educational Record (see details below)

  • Recommendation Information (see details below)

  • Statement of Purpose

All applicants will be interviewed in person or via video conference.
