Double your impact by making a gift to Partners in Education!
Partners in Education (PIE), a coalition of academic and community leaders, is providing matching gifts of up to $15,000!
Each year, PIE provides fellowships of up to $4,000 to support future teachers enrolled in our teaching credential programs. Prior to completing the program, students are required to work full-time for one semester in a K-12 classroom under the supervision of a master teacher and attend evening classes at CPP.
Most of our students who work part-time or more to support themselves give up their work in order to complete their credential, which creates economic hardship. In response, PIE established its fellowship program to allow our students to focus on their supervised teaching assignments without worrying about how the bills will be paid.
Since its inception in 2005, over $1 million in much-needed financial support has been awarded to promising students as they complete their studies towards a career in education.
Please join us in supporting future teachers entering this profession at an unprecedented time by making a gift to Partners in Education (PIE) this Giving Day!

Make a Gift to the Ed. Leadership Scholarship!
The mission of the Department of Educational Leadership is to prepare educational leaders to serve the needs of diverse learners, families, schools, and communities across Southern California in ways that are caring, collaborative, and culturally responsive. Through the generosity of our donors, two $500 scholarships were awarded to dissertation students in 2021 to support research in meeting the department's mission. Make your gift to the Educational Leadership Doctoral Program Scholarship Fund today to continue this new opportunity for students!
The College of Education and Integrative Studies (CEIS) offers a range of undergraduate and graduate programs that aim to develop critical thinkers and problem solvers who go on to become teachers, higher education faculty, social workers, non-profit leaders, education administrators and educational psychologists.
We host a large number of first-generation college students. Most need financial support to pay for their courses and cover their expenses. Every cent will be allocated to scholarship support for students, many of whom work multiple jobs and raise families in addition to attending classes. For these students, even a small donation can make a big difference.
Students in our multiple subject credential program develop and practice literacy games to present to their future students during clinical practice.
