T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® VERMONT Scholarship
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® VERMONT is a scholarship program for early childhood educators that provides access to debt-free educational opportunities.
T.E.A.C.H. offers scholarship funds to take courses toward a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. It is a partnership between the recipient, the program where they are employed, and the Vermont Association for the Education of Young Children (VTAEYC).
Recipients are awarded funding for 80% of tuition and 90% of books, a stipend to cover the costs of accessing classes each semester, and a bonus and/or annual raise. In return, they must meet their portion of costs and commit to one more year at their sponsoring program. Employers are partially reimbursed for the recipient’s paid time off and provided counseling and administrative support.
