Early Childhood Education

Children deserve to live long, happy, and healthy lives and should be safe at school. 

Unfortunately, many children face injuries and harm at school, often on the playground. More than 200,000 children go to the emergency room every year as a result of an injury on the playground and 15 child fatalities occur from playground equipment each year.

It is of critical importance to take precautions to keep children safe and injury-free by providing proper supervision, age-appropriate equipment, materials to soften falls to the surface, and maintaining playground equipment.

This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Andrea Tyrah DeBruhl by promoting playground safety awareness to protect children from harm or injury.

Any undergraduate student who is interested in pursuing early childhood education and has a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us why playground safety is important to you and how you’ll ensure that your future playgrounds are safe.
