The Drexel Fund offers a prestigious paid fellowship to innovative leaders with a strong desire and plan to launch high-quality private schools for low-income children.
The fellowship is rigorous and customized to the Fellow’s leadership development and school launch needs. The fellowship includes leadership coaching and cohort trainings. Fellows receive a stipend and a budget for their individual learning plan and school launch support during a one-year fellowship that culminates in Fellows requesting school start-up funding from The Drexel Fund. Schools that meet The Drexel Fund’s rigorous selection criteria will receive financial resources in the school’s early years before it reaches full capacity. The Drexel Fund also will be a strategic and financial partner in the development of successful school models into networks of schools.
