  • Our Bright Future's Scholarship Program supports the field of early childhood education by offering financial assistance for future teachers. We believe the profession of early childhood education deserves more respect and support.

    We are excited to offer financial assistance ranging from $250-$1,000 for full-time students pursuing degrees in Early Childhood Education or in a related field.
