NACCTEP Scholarship Program and the Haberman Star Teacher Scholarship

The 2014-2015 NACCTEP Scholarship Guidelines and Application are now available. Application packets are due by April 18, 2014.

The mission of NACCTEP is to promote the community college role in the recruitment, preparation, retention, and renewal of diverse early childhood and K-12 teachers and to advance quality teacher education programs in the community college. To further this mission, NACCTEP is proud to offer two $1,000 scholarships to students at member colleges who are studying to become teachers.

The Haberman Education Foundation is partnering with NACCTEP to offer the Haberman Star Teacher Scholarship for $1,000! The Haberman Star Teacher Scholarship will follow the same application and evaluation process as the NACCTEP National Scholarship Program.

The Scholarship Committee will review all applications and award three $1,000 scholarships for 2014-15, one Haberman Star Teacher Scholarship and two NACCTEP National Scholarships each for $1,000.


  • The purpose of the NACCTEP National Scholarship Program is to provide financial assistance to students (undergraduate and alternative certification/post-baccalaureate) at NACCTEP member colleges who are studying to become teachers.
  • Awards are for a total of $1,000.
  • Scholarship awards will be made available through college financial aid offices.
  • An individual may receive a NACCTEP scholarship only once.
  • Award recipients who withdraw from their member college or do not maintain the minimum amount of credits will forfeit their scholarship.
