Financial Aid

MEIPN does not offer financial aid or scholarships. Child Care Aware of Washington offers full scholarships at the Infant and Toddler and Early Childhood levels to students employed in Washington schools who participate in Early Achievers. See ChildCare Aware of Washington for qualifications and application forms.

The American Montessori Society offers four to six annual partial scholarships nationally to students who show both particular merit as a potential teacher and limited financial resources.
If you wish to apply for an AMS Scholarship, you must contact AMS to obtain information and forms. You must be enrolled and accepted by MEIPN, and submit AMS scholarship forms to MEIPN for required approval no later than April I5 of the year in which you will take the program.

Students from Alaska may contact the Alaska Commission on Postsecondary Location for loan information. MEIPN programs are not eligible for federal student loans because we are not large enough to fund a financial aid office.
