Bright Futures Scholarship

The Bright Futures Scholarship Program supports the field of early childhood education by offering scholarships for future teachers. It is our hope that this scholarship program will be a way to encourage students of great promise to continue pursuing their dreams of caring for and teaching young children.

In 2018, we awarded 29 scholarships for students pursuing degrees in early childhood education or in a related field primarily focusing on the education of children ages 8 and under. Criteria for selection included proof of academic excellence, writing samples that demonstrated career goals and commitment to early childhood teaching, as well as strong endorsements by their references.

The 2018 application is currently closed. Stay tuned for the announcement of our 2018 scholarship winners later this summer!

Scholarship Information

Our Bright Future’s Scholarship Program supports the field of early childhood education by offering financial assistance for future teachers each year. We believe the profession of early childhood education deserves more respect and support. It is our hope that this program will be a way to encourage students of great promise to continue pursuing their dreams of caring and teaching young children.

We are excited to offer financial assistance for students in the early childhood field, focusing on the education of children ages 6 and under. Higher education requires a significant investment and these awards help to offset student expenses. Selected recipients will be awarded funds directly for use toward purchasing books, laptops, fees or other education-related expenses. 

High school, two- and four-year college/university, and graduate students enrolled in accredited colleges or universities in the United States are eligible. Bright Horizons employees are not eligible for the Bright Futures Scholarship. Current and past Bright Horizons interns are encouraged to apply.
