AMS Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Scholarship Program
The AMS DEI Scholarship Program supports our commitment to expanding access to AMS professional development and ensuring that the learning opportunities we create are inclusive in serving all people, especially marginalized or under-resourced populations.
When you give to this program, you are supporting educators who, through their varied life experiences, promote healthy Montessori communities and nurture the overall success of present and future generations. Our hope is that many of our DEI scholarship recipients will move on to lead Montessori schools, classrooms, and teacher education programs around the world.
In 2018, the AMS Board of Directors voted to make inclusion and equity a strategic priority because we believe in recognizing and honoring the full spectrum of human and social identities, including, but not limited to race, culture, gender, age, ability, language, economic and social background, religion, family composition, nationality, and sexual orientation.Make an Impact.
