Academic degree scholarships are designed to increase your level of education, reduce turnover and increase wages for the early childhood workforce.
The scholarship covers tuition for early care and education staff seeking an early childhood degree at an Idaho college or university. The scholarship covers 9-16 credits each academic year toward a Child Development Associate (CDA), Technical Certificate, Associate Degree or Bachelor’s Degree in early childhood.
The scholarship is a partnership between IdahoSTARS, the scholar and the sponsoring child care center or home-based program. Each party shares in the cost of the scholarship.
