In the mid 1990s, leaders of the Greater Santa Cruz Federation of Teachers decided the CFT, a union of educators, should offer the children of its members scholarships to achieve their higher education goals.
This summer, the CFT awarded scholarships to 15 continuing college students through its Raoul Teilhet Scholarship Program. The young adults who received $3,000 scholarships are listed below with the names of their parents or guardians who are members. For high school seniors, the deadline to apply for a CFT scholarship is January 10.
