MASA's Richard Green Scholars
Program honors the scholarly work and
professional development of Minnesota school leaders through the award of
an annual recognition for the research, writing, and presentation of one paper
reflecting the practice of excellent school leadership.
Each winter, MASA members are invited to submit summary proposals for papers.
A subcommittee of the MASA Executive Development Committee will select the
Richard Green Scholar based on the submitted paper proposals.
The scholarship recipient will be
announced at the MASA Spring Conference, and
the recipient will present his or her paper at the MASA Fall Conference.
Richard Green Scholar will receive a recognition plaque, a $1,000 award,
and conference tuition and lodging for the Fall Conference.
The Richard Green
Scholars Program was named to honor former Minneapolis
Superintendent Richard R. Green, who modeled innovation and distinction in the
child-centered practice of exemplary school leadership.
