The OEC Scholarship Assistance Program

The OEC Scholarship Assistance Program uses state and federal dollars to help Connecticut's early childhood professionals increase their competence and advance their education.

Applicants must be Registry account holders who are employed in Connecticut early care and education settings and who are pursuing an early childhood higher education degree or credential, or who seek eligible training to improve competency as an early childhood professional.

Approved requests provide grants directly to the college / university or credentialing entity in the account holder’s name.

Eligibility criteria and priorities are established by the OEC based on state and federal requirements and initiatives. View the Scholarship At-A-Glance for all current scholarship eligibility and application detail.
