Scholarship for our Children

The ECHL Lori McGough Harkness Scholarship was established in 2017, to provide assistance for families who have more the one child enrolled in the SFA's Early Childhood Lab. Both parents must be working full time or be enrolled as a full-time SFA student and must not qualify for additional child care funding through any other program. The scholarship will be awarded each semester beginning Fall 2017.
