In addition to financial aid and payment plan options offered by Hofstra University, the EPL program offers a variety of financial aid options for candidates applying to the Advanced Certificate in Educational Leadership or the doctoral program in Educational and Policy Leadership (Ed.D.)

Phase I doctoral students completing School District Leader/School Building Leader certification requirements are now eligible for the Hagedorn Fellowship Program.

Doctoral Fellowships

Doctoral Fellowships for Educational Leaders are designed for exceptionally qualified candidates who are currently employed in educational leadership positions, or those who will complete administrative certification requirements as part of the doctoral program  - or “in Phase I” of the doctoral program. These awards offer tuition remission for qualified candidates of the doctoral program.

Doctoral Fellowship financial aid decisions are made by May 1.

Research Assistantships

Applicants to the doctoral program may apply for a position as a research assistant. These positions are only available to full-time students in the doctoral program; duties typically require a minimum of 15 hours/week. For details, contact the department.
Doctoral students who receive financial support are expected to provide service to the learning community through participation on one of several committees, organizing social events, participating in student recruitment activities, or developing the department newsletter.
Students are also encouraged to apply for fellowships and financial incentives awarded by professional organizations, such as the American Association of School Administrators (AASA) and 100 Black Women of Long Island.
