PA T.E.A.C.H AT NEUMANN

T.E.A.C.H. Grants at Neumann

Neumann University is proud to participate in the PA T.E.A.C.H. tuition assistance program provided.  The T.E.A.C.H. (Teacher Education And Compensation Helps) Early Childhood® PENNSYLVANIA Scholarship Program works with early childhood providers, colleges and child care staff to offer scholarship programs and support systems that improve the education and compensation of child care workers.

T.E.A.C.H. obtains its funding through grants from businesses, foundations, and government. By helping to increase professionalism, raise wages and reduce turnover of child care staff, this public-private partnership brings higher quality care to Pennsylvania’s children. T.E.A.C.H. is administered by the Pennsylvania Child Care Association.

Four components of T.E.A.C.H.

Every T.E.A.C.H. scholarship has four key components:

  • Scholarship. The scholarship covers most of the cost of tuition and books. Recipients also receive a travel stipend each semester they are enrolled in class. T.E.A.C.H. requires that the sponsoring child care program offer paid release time for the student to attend class, study, or handle personal needs. Participants are assigned a counselor to assist them in scholarship management and career development.
  • Education. In one scholarship year, each participant must successfully complete a required number of credit hours (usually 9-15) toward a degree or credential in early childhood education.
  • Compensation. At the end of the scholarship year, if they complete their educational requirement, participants are eligible to receive either a stipend or a raise.
  • Commitment. Participants agree to continue working in their child care program for one year after each scholarship year.
