Scholarships for Early Childhood Education Available at IVCC


Illinois Valley Community College is partnering with the Illinois Student Assistance Commission (ISAC) to offer Early Childhood Access Consortium for Equity (ESACE) scholarship opportunities for the 2023-2024 academic year beginning with the Fall Semester.   If you are currently employed or have worked in early childhood education and are looking to increase your credentials or earn a degree, you may be eligible for the ECACE scholarship.

The scholarship was developed to help address the shortage of qualified early childhood teachers by providing the current workforce opportunities to pursue advanced credentials in an effort to build a stronger work-force. The scholarship may be used for tuition, fees and cost of attendance.

ECACE scholarship applicants are required to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the same academic year. The priority application deadline for the 2023-24 academic year is August 7, 2023, but late applications may be considered.
