PhD in Leadership and Change Announces New Scholarship Fund for International Students

Antioch University’s Graduate School of Leadership and Change (GSLC) is extremely pleased to announce the founding of a new scholarship fund to support doctoral students in the PhD in Leadership and Change (PhDLC) program. The Joanne E. McLean Scholarship for Leadership has been established by GSLC alumnus Dr. David McLean to honor the legacy of his wife, Joanne, who attended many residencies with David. Joanne was passionate about leadership development, dedicating the last two decades of her professional life to the subject. She also deeply admired the community of learner-practitioners at Antioch, and the educational model offered in the Leadership and Change program. Following her passing, David wanted to create this scholarship as a celebration of Joanne’s life.

With news that his dissertation chair, Dr. Elizabeth Holloway, would be stepping down from her full-time role in the program, David felt it timely to recognize the incredible contributions of Dr. Holloway to both his own academic journey and to that of so many others enrolled in the program. This new tuition scholarship is targeted for international students (non-US citizens), whether living abroad or domestically, who demonstrate both merit and need. With this generous founding pledge of $50,000, up to $5,000 a year will be available whether to a single student or split amongst multiple students through the competitive scholarship application process. In any single year, Canadian applicants to this fund will be given priority among international applicants.
