Lifelong Learning Scholarships For CUSD Staff

As part of our commitment to fueling access, innovation, and excellence within the Chandler Unified School District (CUSD), the Chandler Education Foundation (CEF) supports advanced training and certification for our dedicated educators through Lifelong Learning Scholarships. 

Made possible through the generous support of our partner, the Subaru Superstore of Chandler, CUSD staff can submit applications for scholarship funding throughout the year. Applications with an emphasis on National Board Certification, STEAM, Special Education, or Gifted Endorsement will be given priority consideration during the selection process. The Lifelong Learning Committee evaluates all applications as they are submitted, with decisions provided within 4-weeks of submission. 

Awards may total no more than $2,500 per year. Funding awarded depends on type of qualification and availability of funds. Recipients may apply for/receive one subsequent award through this program.

Applications are accepted through the Foundation's Scholarship Platform. (Applicants must enter the code LLL2023 on the top right portion of the application page in order to access the Lifelong Learning application.)

Questions or concerns, please contact us by email or by calling (480) 224-3030.


Subaru Shares the Love

Share the Love Check Presentation - 2023

Thank you to Lisa Cvijanovich and Subaru Superstore of Chandler for making Chandler Education Foundation part of your Share the Love campaign!  In 2022-2023, Subaru and Subaru Superstore of Chandler contributed $80,000 to the Foundation from new Subaru purchases and lease agreements made during the campaign.

These funds provide valuable financial support for CUSD teachers to receive specialized training and certifications - positively impacting their careers and the quality of education our students receive. Visit our Share the Love page for more details on this campaign. 

Thank you to all the new Subaru owners who chose the Chandler Education Foundation as your charity of choice!


Equity in Education Scholarship

Thanks to a generous grant from Intel, scholarships are available to increase the number of educators from underrepresented groups, including Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx, veterans, and people with disabilities. 

Scholarships of up to $1,000 are available for CUSD staff who want to obtain teaching credentials, including post-baccalaureate certificates. Priority is given to those pursuing credentials to teach Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, or Mathematics. 

CUSD team members are encouraged to nominate colleagues who are interested in becoming a teacher by emailing the Chandler Education Foundation. Please include the candidate's full name and CUSD site. Once received, the candidate will receive a link to apply online. 

Applications can be submitted at any time before August 2, 2024.
