The Drexel Fund offers a paid fellowship to innovative leaders with a strong desire and plan to launch high-quality, private schools for low-income children. The fellowship includes leadership coaching, cohort trainings and school launch support. Founders receive a living stipend and a budget for their individual learning plans during a one-year fellowship that culminates in founders requesting school start-up funding. Fellows with approved program plans will receive financial resources while starting the school as they grow full capacity. Successful schools will also be eligible for more funding to expand the school model.
