Scholarship Information

It is the belief of Northeast Montessori Institute that individuals wishing to undertake Montessori teacher training not be prevented from doing so due to financial restrictions. Northeast Montessori Institute is not, however, a lending institution and encourages applicants to seek alternate financing when available, as the meeting of its operating costs and salaries are based upon the responsible timely tuition payment of its Adult Learners.
