Student Teaching Scholarship

The Student Teaching Scholarship Model consists of 8-15 college credits to be completed in one semester. The purpose of this model is to meet the needs of teachers, directors, and owners who only have 1 semester of Student Teaching remaining for their degree. Student teaching can be completed at any of the four-year colleges listed in the College Directory.

The Student Teaching Scholarship is not the only scholarship model that supports courses in early childhood and early childhood special education for a Bachelor’s Degree. If you have more than 2 semesters remaining to earn your Bachelor’s degree or have more than 3 semesters remaining to earn your Bachelor’s degree, a Pre-Certification Scholarship or a Bachelor Degree Scholarship might be a good fit for you. Review these options and call or email us if you are uncertain about which to select.

We prefer that you complete all general education courses at a two-year college prior to moving to your early childhood coursework at a four-year college. However, if you prefer to take all of your courses at a four-year college, please let your scholarship counselor know. A Student Teaching Scholarship can not be maintained past the one semester necessary to complete student teaching per degree earned.

A Student Teaching Scholarship may best suit your needs if you are:

  • A teacher, director, assistant, aide, or owner
  • Beginning student teaching.
