The Graduate School of Leadership and Change program offers several scholarships for new and continuing students.
The PhD program’s Alan E. Guskin Scholars’ Fund offers tuition scholarships for incoming and continuing students, and research support for those in candidacy who engaged in the dissertation process (in the field of education). In accordance with the commitment of Antioch University to encourage a socially engaged and humanistic education that helps to improve the quality of life for individuals, communities, and the world, the two primary criteria for selection will be documented performance in service to a community and student need. To be considered, students must have an EFC of $30,000 or lower. For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Matt Magrath Scholarship enables the PhD in Leadership and Change (PhDLC) to offer annual tuition scholarships to support the study of leadership and change (scholarship and practice) that directly impacts and improves the lives of individuals and communities addressing addiction. This scholarship fund was established by a generous gift from Matt’s family and members of Cohort 9 as a way to honor Matt’s courageous commitment to research and practice that improves the lives of those struggling with addiction, always guided by the ethics of care and compassion, and full of a love of life. Matt demonstrated his life-long pursuit to ‘win victories for humanity.’ For further information, please contact email@example.com

As a returned Peace Corps volunteer, the Coverdell Fellows Program is an opportunity to combine your academic and professional endeavors with your desire to work in underserved communities. To learn more about this exciting opportunity, please refer to information below.
The Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program (formerly known as Fellows/USA) is a graduate fellowship program that offers financial assistance to returned Peace Corps Volunteers. Fellows the PhD in Leadership and Change or the PhD in Leadership and Change for Healthcare and must do their second-year change project in an underserved American community.
Incoming graduate students who have completed a Peace Corps experience are eligible to apply for a scholarship equal to 25% of tuition.
