Student Group Start up Grant

Purpose of the Grant:

The SCECA Student Group Start Up Grant is open to Early Childhood Advisors who want to establish a professional membership group affiliated with the South Carolina Early Childhood Association on their high school or two/four year college/university campus.

Eligibility:

  • The Student Advisor submits the grant application.
  • The Student Advisor further agrees to write an article for the SCOPE newsletter about how the grant was helpful in starting the student group from your school to encourage other high school or colleges/universities to consider starting a student group.
