Early Childhood Scholarship

Eligibility: Recipients are selected from applications submitted jointly by the parents and one of the many accredited Three-Star rated nonprofit centers offering early childhood education of the highest caliber.

The goal of this initiative is to transform the lives of children who risk entering the public school system with an avoidable early learning deficit that will forever hamper their ability to learn and to succeed in school and in life. This Fund benefits the working poor, who often face the difficult choice of quitting school or leaving a job to care for a child due to the rising cost of day care, thus perpetuating the cycle of poverty.

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.” – Frederick Douglass
