Do you have a dependent who is enrolling in college for the 2018 summer or Fall term? Are you returning to school for additional coursework? CTA Scholarships for 2017-2018 are open. (Not to be confused with SEA's scholarships-those open in February). Dependent children and CTA members are eligible for scholarships of up to $5,000 through CTA. The deadline for applications is February 2. More information can be found at cta.org/scholarships.
Additionally, ethnic minority students are eligible to apply for the Martin Luther King Jr memorial scholarships when interested in becoming teachers, school nurses, or school counselors. Applications must be submitted by February 16.
*Detailed information can be found on CTA's website (cta.org/scholarships). Scholarships are awarded based on a point system. The more complete the application, the more points awarded. For example, a generic letter of recommendation will bring in fewer points than one that follows the guidelines outlined in the brochure.
