“Honor the Past and Reimagine the Future” Early Childhood Scholarship

The “Honor the Past and Reimagine the Future” Early Childhood Scholarship, sponsored by Arizona AEYC, acknowledges and honors the outstanding service of early childhood professionals — past, present and future.

Arizona AEYC will award one $1,250 scholarship each to 2 students attending an accredited Arizona university/college and majoring in early childhood education (or a closely related field) with an interest in equitable quality early childhood experiences, early childhood public policy, and advocacy efforts on behalf of young children and families.

This scholarship can be used to continue college education (for undergraduate and graduate courses), and/or attain career goals (such as purchasing resources for professional growth and/or covering any living expenses like rent/mortgage, groceries, or auto expenses).

Applications are accepted through Sunday, October 2, 2022. The award will be presented at the 2022 Arizona AEYC Annual Membership Meeting & Brunch on Saturday, October 15, 2022.
