The 2021 AzAEYC Early Childhood Scholarship “Honor the Past and Reimagine the Future” was renamed this year to acknowledge and honor the outstanding service of early childhood professionals, past, present, and future.
As a member benefit, AzAEYC members get an extra week to complete their application before it opens to other early childhood educators on Saturday, September 18, 2021.
