Higher Education Navigator

Higher Education Navigators recruit members of the early childhood workforce who wish to return to school for additional early childhood degrees, licenses, and credentials. Navigators support individuals through the process of identifying programs to meet their educational goals, as well as helping them to understand which programs may be most appropriate given their academic background and current level of education. Information will be provided on available scholarship opportunities, including the Early Childhood Access Consortium for Equity Scholarship (ECACE). Navigators will assist with completing applications for the program of choice, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and any relevant scholarship opportunities.
