Montessori Credential Grant Program

Program Details

Less than 5% of Montessori teachers identify as Black. We created this grant opportunity to help bridge the gap and invest in the future of Black leadership in Montessori learning environments.​Selected applicants will have their tuition paid-in-full.

 

All payments are made directly to the training centers and this grant does not cover application fees, books, materials, or travel expenses.

 

We've invested more than $130,000 to provide tuition for 17 Black educators studying at training centers nationwide.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for this grant program, schools must:

  • Identify as Black.

  • Be located within the United States or Puerto Rico.

  • Plan to attend a MACTE-accredited training program.

 

Please note: experience in a Montessori setting is not required. We encourage all Black educators in every stage of their career to apply.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for this grant program, schools must:

  • Have at least one Founding Teacher Leader who identifies as Black.

  • Be located within the United States or Puerto Rico.

  • Have a formal affiliation with the Wildflower Schools Foundation.

  • Be registered as a 501c(3) non-profit organization with the IRS.

  • Submit a comprehensive Planning Album that showcases a financial plan with existing grant and loan streams.
