PURPOSE

The Early Childhood Educator Student Success Grant is a non-competitive grant offered by the Early Childhood Education and Care Department (ECECD) that will provide flexible financial support to meet the unique needs of students enrolled in early childhood education programs of study at New Mexico Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). Students enrolled in an accredited college or university seeking to
obtain an associates or bachelor’s degree in early childhood and attending at least six credit hours are eligible for a stipend each semester/trimester. Stipends will be determined by the number of credit hours each student is taking per semester/trimester. The HEIs will administer and distribute the stipend program.

ECECD is offering this grant to support the advancement of a diverse, well-compensated and credentialed workforce through supported pathways for early childhood professionals to obtain an associates or bachelor’s degree. This grant application supports Goal 3 in the New Mexico Early Childhood Strategic Plan 2021-2024.
