NAEYC honors Diane Trister Dodge with scholarship designation
(WASHINGTON) – The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) is pleased to announce today the designation of the Diane Trister Dodge Scholarship Award. This scholarship award is named in honor of Diane Trister Dodge, founder and president of Teaching Strategies, Inc., in recognition of her dedication and contribution to advance and support the early childhood profession.
A recipient will be chosen out of those who apply for scholarships to NAEYC’s National Institute for Early Childhood Professional Development, held each June. This year’s Institute will be June 12-15 in Providence, R.I. Scholarships to Institute and NAEYC’s Annual Conference in November are made possible through generous donations to the Lasting Legacy Campaign.
Scholarship applications for Institute are due February 7. The winner of the Diane Trister Dodge Scholarship, and other scholarship winners, will be announced this spring.
NAEYC would also like to thank Teaching Strategies, Inc., for their generous year-round sponsorship.
