Hosted by the Early Educator Investment Collaborative (EEIC).*

*The Early Educator Investment Collaborative is supporting multi-year partnerships between institutions of higher education and states/territories/tribal nations to transform their preparation programs for early educators, break down systemic barriers to education for people of color, and increase financial assistance and compensation for students studying to become early educators. The grants, totaling $13 million, strengthen programs that prepare early educators through a competency-based bachelor’s degree and link to state or tribal nation systems efforts to increase funding for early childhood education students and compensation for teachers.
