In order to take classes at BCTC you MUST apply and be admitted to the college. You can go to the BCTC website and fill out an application online. Completing a Scholarship form and receiving the funding is a separate process and DOES not indicate that you are enrolled at BCTC.

Child Development Associate (CDA) Mini-grant applications (to cover the fees for evaluation) follow a different scholarship deadline and are separate from the Early Childhood Development grant. The CDA Mini-grant deadline is March 15.

You may contact the Professional Development Counselors for more information about these funds.
