A National Program for Aspiring ECE Teachers

Bright Futures Scholarship

The Bright Futures Scholarship Program supports the field of early childhood education by offering scholarships for future teachers. It is our hope that this scholarship program will be a way to encourage students of great promise to continue pursuing their dreams of caring for and teaching young children.

This year we awarded 18 scholarships for students pursuing degrees in early childhood education or in a related field primarily focusing on the education of children ages 8 and under. Criteria for selection included proof of academic excellence, writing samples that demonstrated career goals and commitment to early childhood teaching, as well as strong endorsements by their references.

The next Bright Future Scholarship Program will kick off in February 2017.
