Who may apply for the Van Lunen Fellows Program

Note: We encourage you to contact us with any questions about the following requirements.

The Van Lunen Fellows Program is open to any head* of school** based in the historic Christian faith*** who:

Notes: *This role may have a variety of titles, including superintendent or principal. Any executive leader who reports directly to a school's governing board is eligible.

**The school may include elementary, middle, and/or high school grades. Schools that are early childhood or preschool programs-only are not eligible.

***Historic Christian faith refers to faith traditions that are Trinitarian and hold the Nicene Creed in common. Examples include, but are not limited to, Baptist, Catholic, Christian Reformed, Episcopal, Evangelical, Lutheran, Mennonite, Presbyterian, Reformed, Roman Catholic, Southern Baptist, Non- or Inter-denominational.

Beginning with the 2015-2016 Fellows program year, heads of school who apply and are accepted into the program but change schools or position, or anticipate changing before the 2015-16 school year begins, may be asked to drop out of the program. (Examples are taking a position in which you are no longer head of school, such as teacher, vice-principal, athletic director, etc.; become head of an early-childhood or preschool program; or change from administrator of a Christian school to a public school). Each case will be judged individually with prayerful consideration; the final decision will be made by the director in conjunction with the Van Lunen faculty and accepted Fellow.
