unlike any other scholarship

T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Scholarships:

  • Tie education, compensation and retention together
  • Pay for most of the cost of tuition, books and travel
  • Often require and support paid release time
  • Award increased compensation upon attainment of a prescribed number of college credit hours
  • Provide every participant with access to a scholarship counselor who 1) supplies all of the information and materials scholarship recipients and sponsoring centers need to get started; and 2) helps the recipient negotiate the higher education system including academic and career advising, financial aid and textbook acquisition.

The impact of T.E.A.C.H. goes beyond the individual recipient by:

  • Addressing retention of staff in early childhood programs
  • Creating demand for coursework that builds the capacity of educational institutions in local communities
