Prime Time offers scholarship opportunities for practitioners who may be interested in pursuing certificate or degree programs or attending national/state conferences that are specific to the out-of-school time field. Children and youth benefit when staff are better educated on the stages of youth development and developmentally appropriate practices. Networking with colleagues from throughout the state and the nation to share best practices are invaluable opportunities. We feel it is important that afterschool practitioners have access to a variety of opportunities and seek to provide the support necessary to help them achieve their goals and ultimately strengthen their programs.
Scholarships are granted to afterschool practitioners for classes, conferences, workshops and seminars promoting quality out-of-school time programming and management and directly related to the out-of-school time field. You may be eligible to receive a Prime Time Professional Development Scholarship if you are employed in an afterschool program as a manager or frontline professional. A Prime Time scholarship application must be completed, signed and submitted for consideration. Scholarship deadlines apply to all coursework and conferences.
