Orangeburg, N.Y. — Full-time teachers at public or private schools in Rockland and Bergen counties who wish to become certified for positions such as principals or school district administrators are eligible for scholarships to the Rockland Graduate Campus of Long Island University's certification programs.

The scholarship consists of a one-third tuition discount for all courses in the 30-credit school district leader, school building leader or school district business leader advanced certificate programs.

“There is a growing shortage of qualified school and district administrators in this area,” said Charles Murphy, Ed.D., program director of educational administration at the Rockland Graduate Campus. “This scholarship will help more people choose this career path to fill these expected administrative vacancies in the future.”
