AMS Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Scholarship
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.
AMS is committed to modeling and ensuring the advancement of principles of equity, diversity, and inclusion by leading initiatives in which all feel welcomed, respected, valued, and empowered. The AMS DEI scholarship program supports its members by increasing access to professional development opportunities.
Teacher Education Scholarships
Every year, the American Montessori Society awards teacher education scholarships to aspiring Montessori teachers in support of their professional growth. Those eligible to apply for scholarships are individuals who have been accepted, are in the process of being accepted, or are already enrolled in an AMS-affiliated teacher education program at any of these credential levels: Infant & Toddler, Early Childhood, Elementary (I, I – II, II), and Secondary (I, I – II). These scholarships are not available for individuals enrolled in an AMS Administrator or MIE course.
