ACEL New Voice Scholarships - Winners 2022


It is with great pride that ACEL congratulates the recipients of the 2022 New Voice Scholarships. New Voice Scholarships recognise forward thinking, contextually relevant and responsive educational leaders whose work has had an impact above and beyond their immediate context. The New Voice Scholarships are part of ACEL’s 10 year and $300,000 commitment to recognise the emerging voices in educations leadership.

This year saw a high volume of outstanding candidates across the four categories open for submission, showcasing the depth of our emerging educational leaders that Australia has to offer.

Each scholarship welcomes the recipient into the ACEL network and supports the dissemination of new learning and thought. Among the suite of benefits and support of ACEL network recipients will also receive complimentary attendance at the 2022 ACEL National Conference where the official presentation of the New Voice awards will take place as part of the ACEL National Awards Ceremony on September 28th before an audience of industry peers, leaders and local and international keynote speakers and presenters.

“On behalf of The Australian Council for Educational Leaders, our board, members and staff, we would like to officially welcome and congratulate our outstanding New Voice Scholarship Winners for 2022. The New Voice Scholarship program is a shining light within our portfolio and demonstrates our commitment to identify new voices across the sector and provide them with opportunities to both learn and contribute to the profession. As an organisation, we are honoured to welcome the Class of 2022 and look forward to engaging with them over the coming months".
ACEL President, Stephen Gniel
