For Local Union Presidents
About verifying parent or guardian membership


When the children of CFT members apply for a Raoul Teilhet Scholarship, they are required to obtain verification of the parent or guardian’s union membership. That request will come to the AFT local union president by email. 

As a local president, you will receive an email asking you to verify the parent or guardian’s union membership. Those emails will come to you directly from our scholarship application portal called Community Force. Please note that the email to the president will come from

Please respond to these requests promptly so that the student applicant may complete their application for a Raoul Teilhet Scholarship. Thank you!
