Children’s Scholarship Fund
This Fund provides financial assistance to low-resourced families with children to ensure that no child is unable to attend the Hopkins House Preschool Academy because his or her family cannot afford the tuition. Financial assistance is given on the basis of financial need. A committee of volunteers decides on recipients and determines the amount of each grant. View Video

ECLI College Fellowships Fund
This Fund provides teens enrolled in Hopkins House's Early Childhood Learning Institute (ECLI) with fellowship grants and paid summer internships at local childcare centers. In collaboration with Northern Virginia Community College, the ECLI assists low-resourced teens and adults earn college credits and a career in the early childhood education field. The program, which hosts classes off-campus in communities throughout Northern Virginia, covers the cost of books, childcare, and college counseling. Current financial aid enables students to pay for just half of the 67 college credits needed for an Associate degree. Fellowship grants from this Fund will provide the rest. In order to receive a fellowship, a student must be enrolled in the ECLI at the time of application, demonstrate aptitude and commitment to continuing their college education through graduation with a degree in Early Childhood Education, have compelling financial need, and having earned at least 25 college credits in the ECLI.  View Video
