Awards and Grants
We are very proud to provide scholarships, awards and grants to directly support new members and emerging leaders. Scholarships for new memberships to NAEYC are available after our annual conference on a first-come, first-serve basis thanks to the annual Honor an Educator fundraising event at conference. Awards and Grants applications are open for aspiring conference attendees to apply for scholarships, awards and grants. The deadline to submit was extended to February 20. Applications are available on the CAAEYC website on the home page.
Please reach out to your network to help us continue to expand our program. Invite someone to establish a named scholarship, award or grant to honor someone that represents CAAEYC’s mission to promote excellence in early childhood education. They can be honorary or memorial tributes. A family could honor the memory of a loved one by sponsoring a conference registration. A family could celebrate a birth by offering a scholarship or grant for a CAAEYC membership in the name of the new family member. It doesn’t have to be a person; maybe you, or a family member, work for a company that would like to be recognized as a champion for early educators. Your gifts will help them continue their development as professionals and improve the lives of the children and families they work with.
