North Carolina Principal Fellows Program

The NC Principal Fellows Program helps the best and most qualified students to complete a two-year full-time Master of School Administration (MSA) program.  As a competitive, merit-based scholarship loan program that is funded by the North Carolina General Assembly, the program assists selected individuals to prepare for a career in school administration (i.e., assistant principal or principal). From it's beginning in 1994, to date, over 1000 Principal Fellows have participated in the program.

Principal Fellows enroll in the Master of School Administration (MSA) program offered at eleven campuses of the University of North Carolina.  The second year students participate in a required yearlong, full-time internship at various school districts throughout the state.  The program has received widespread support from school districts through their granting of leaves of absences to employees who have been selected to receive the scholarship loan, providing sites for interns, and employing graduates of the program.  The benefits of the program include the financial support provided to the Fellows while earning the MSA, the opportunity for school districts to work with Principal Fellow interns for a year, and the development of a pool of well-trained, highly qualified administrative candidates available to all North Carolina school systems.
