Transforming Lives

Awards & Scholarships

Each year CEA recognizes leaders for their service to the field of correctional education. Specific awards recognize educators, researchers, advocates, and innovators. We accept nominations for each of our awards throughout the year. Below is a list of the awards CEA regularly bestows upon these leaders in correctional education.


The CEA Awards represent recognition to those individuals who have served correctional education. Nominees may be individuals who have contributed their lifetime career to correctional education, those who have demonstrated best practices for teaching correctional students, and/or individuals who have enlisted the use of technology in correctional education. Additionally, CEA strives to annually recognize classroom teachers who have demonstrated excellence in their teaching.



The Correctional Education Association sponsors a scholarship to members who wish to pursue professional development. Scholarship monies are available up to $500 per individual for varied professional development endeavors.
