ACEL New Voice Scholarships - Alumni 2017

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce the recipients of the 2017 ACEL New Voice Scholarships. The ACEL New Voice Scholarships recognise forward thinking, contextually relevant and responsive educational leaders whose work has had an impact above and beyond their immediate context. This year, a total of 16 scholarships have been awarded across three categories:

  • Category 1: The ‘New Voice’ in Educational Leadership
  • Category 2: The ’New Voice’ in Educational Leadership Research
  • Category 3: The ‘New Indigenous Voice’ in Educational Leadership

Each scholarship welcomes the recipients into the ACEL network and supports the dissemination of new learning and thought. The recipients will be recognised as forward-thinking, relevant and responsive educational leaders by peers and the wider education community.

This is the third year ACEL has awarded these scholarships and we now have over 55 talented educators across all states and territories that have been recognised and rewarded for their work. The New Voice Scholarships initiative, launched in 2015, is a 10-year commitment from ACEL to identify ‘new voices’ in education.
