AECENL is excited to be taking on the responsibility of assessing and processing the existing ECE Trainee Bursary, ECE Graduate Bursary and On Camps Field Placement Bursary as well as the introduction of the new ECE Recruitment and Retention on behalf of the Department of Education.


Where the ECE recruitment and Retention Grant is linked to certification levels and a commitment to service, and the education bursaries support professional growth, they contribute to the continued development of an education and career pathway where early childhood educators are encouraged to advance within their profession.


To access information, policies, eligibility requirements, applications and forms for each of the bursaries and grant, please visit the individual pages that are found on the side bar of this page.
