T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood UTAH Scholarship

The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood UTAH Scholarship Program came to Utah in spring 2016.  The program is administered through the Utah Association for the Education of Young Children (UAEYC).  All recipients must currenlty be employed as a center directors or teachers or family care providers and sponsored by their employer to participate.  The scholarship covers 80% of the cost of tuition and books.  Recipients pay application fees and are responsible for 10% of the costs.  The employer commits to pay 10% of tuition each semester the recipient is enrolled in class.  If the recipient is a classroom teacher, sponsors also commit to pay 3 hours of released time per week of the 16 week semester.  T.E.A.C.H. reimburses the sponsoring employer for $4.50/hour paid.  Sponsors also commit to pay the recipient a raise or bonus following the completion of each educaitonal contract year.

The vision of the T.E.A.C.H. Advisory Committee is to "Establish a robust, statewide T.E.A.C.H. program to elevate the field of ECE throughout Utah"
