Two people in classroom

IMPACT Program Overview

The IMPACT Arkansas Fellowship is a non-traditional leadership preparation program provided by the University of Arkansas and funded by the Walton Family Foundation. The fellowship’s purpose is to prepare future leaders in low-income schools throughout Arkansas. Fellows receive a Master of Education degree in Educational Leadership upon completion of this 18 month program. IMPACT graduates have achieved a 100% pass rate on the School Leaders Licensure Assessment. Those accepted into the fellowship receive a scholarship which pays for 80% of all tuition and fees.

Outside the fellowship, the EDLE offers coursework and guidance for a general M.Ed. in primary and secondary educational administration.
