Bringing the benefits of new knowledge and a fresh perspective to Australian public schools and their wider communities.

Teachers Mutual Bank Principals Scholarship

Are you a public school Principal? Or, do you know an inspiring public school Principal?

A decade of making an impact

Since 2013, the Teachers Mutual Bank Principals Scholarship has been awarded to a public school Principal who demonstrates strong leadership ability, a commitment to public education, and the capacity to make a difference in their community.

In partnership with the Public Education Foundation, we give a public school Principal the opportunity to attend a world-class leadership program at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education in the USA.

Meet some of our past recipients

To reflect on 10 years of the Teachers Mutual Bank Principals Scholarship, we sat down with previous recipients to talk about how the program has impacted them personally, their schools and the wider public school communities. 

The Scholarship impacted my school in a number of ways. There's an old saying that goes, 'everybody wins when the principal gets better' and the opportunity for me to do just that was fantastic for my school." – Clayton Reedie, 2016 Recipient 

What I've learnt from the Principal's Scholarship, I've been able to feed back to other principals and aspiring leaders." – Melissa Proctor, 2017 Recipient
