American College Of Education Offers Student Grants and Help With Tuition Payments

Students Seeking a Master's Degree in Education Online May Apply for Tuition Grants

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - March 17, 2010) -  The climb for teachers seeking to move up the career ladder just got less costly and more convenient. American College of Education, the leader in online teaching degrees, has announced it has approved a total of $2,500,000 in student grants and help with tuition payments for teachers who pursue their master's degree in education online through the College. 

"With these student grants and help with tuition payments, we are further reducing the cost of our already affordable online master's degree in education programs to help teachers overcome cost, one of the biggest obstacles they face as they work towards a degree that is key to career advancement," said Dr. Vernon Johnson, an executive vice president at American College of Education. "And because all of our courses are offered exclusively online, our online master's degree students can take their classes anytime, anywhere they have an Internet connection, thus reducing the obstacle of accessibility." Tuition for a master's degree in education online program at the College is $6,950 without the grant assistance.

American College of Education, a fully accredited online college, is offering the student grants and help with tuition payments to teachers across five states: Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, and South Carolina; as well as through a few select membership organizations including the National Education Association (NEA), Chicago Teachers Union, Scholastic, Inc., Discovery Education, TeacherTube, and numerous regional organizations. The tuition grants will offset the cost of the first five online courses that teachers take at the College.

Students pursuing master's degrees in education online at American College of Education may choose from the following degrees: M.Ed. in Education Leadership, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with ESL Specialization, M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with Bilingual Specialization, and the newly approved M.Ed. in Educational Technology. All courses are offered exclusively online. 

Members selected for the tuition grants must meet admission criteria and enroll in the College by each initiative's deadline. The GRE is not required. Any educator in the country who is interested in applying for a tuition grant should contact the American College of Education Enrollment Department at 1-800-280-0307 or visit the College's website at
