Program Overview

Every child deserves passionate and talented teachers. Yet, because teacher turnover rates in urban schools are statistically higher than in other settings, inner-city students are yearning for highly qualified educators committed to making a long-term difference in their lives.

Project INVEST began by partnering with a consortium of schools but has since expanded greatly, simplifying the process for you to earn both your bachelor’s in early childhood education and your Wisconsin teaching license in one convenient virtual program. If you are employed by a consortium school, you may be eligible for the Project Invest Scholarship. And if you are employed by a Christian School, Educational Partner, or are an Alumni of Concordia University you may be eligible to apply for an Uncommon Scholarship.
