NewSchools is committed to increasing the diversity of Summit attendees. Thanks to the generous support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, we are able to offer a limited number of scholarships to ensure that the cost of registration and travel for the event does not preclude people, particularly emerging Black and Latino leaders, from attending. We will award scholarships to leaders who will contribute to the Summit experience by sharing a range of perspectives and bringing ideas back to their organizations.

Scholarship awards cover registration fees and, depending on location and need, may also cover travel and hotel costs. Scholarship applications for Summit 2019 are due by Jan. 31, and applicants will be notified by the end of March.
