Bright Futures Scholarship

2017 National Program for Aspiring ECE Teachers

The 2017 Application has been closed. Winners will be announced later this summer.

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

We are excited to offer financial assistance up to $1,000 for students enrolled in a degree program for Early Childhood Education or related field. Education requires a significant investment and these awards help to offset expenses for students. Selected recipients will be awarded funds directly that may be used to purchase books, laptops, fees or other education-related expenses.

Students must be enrolled in an Associate's, Bachelor's or Master's Program at an accredited college or university in the United States. Please review the eligibility requirements below to verify you meet the credit prerequisite for this scholarship. Bright Horizons employees are not eligible for the Bright Futures Program. Current and past Bright Horizons interns are encouraged to apply.
