Departments of Human Services and Education Provide New Scholarships for Future Teachers in Early Childhood Education
The Colorado Department of Human Services (CDHS) Office of Early Childhood and the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) announced today the availability of up to $400,000 in scholarships for students in Colorado’s community colleges who want to teach young children.
Through a combined effort from CDHS and CDE, Colorado’s Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge Grant is contributing $200,000. Colorado’s Community College foundations are matching those funds with an additional $200,000. The scholarships will be awarded to students who intend to work in early childhood education and are studying at one of the state’s 16 community colleges.
