The Early Childhood Department at Butler Community College, in partnership with the Butler Foundation and Child Start, is working to finalize a new scholarship opportunity for Early Childhood Education. A $16,000 gift was received by Child Start through two subgrants from the Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund - the Wichita Child Care Access Program grant and the Quality Beginnings Rural Grant. The scholarship will be awarded to Early Childhood Education students taking certificate-qualifying classes. The purpose of the gift is to help impact the local workforce; one of the stipulations is the scholarships are to be awarded to students employed by a local state-licensed early childhood program or students who own a state-licensed family childcare program.
