Raoul Teilhet Scholarship

The Federation is pleased to announce that we are celebrating 20 proud years of our Raoul Teilhet Scholarship Program. This program has produced an enduring benefit of membership and remains a fitting tribute to former CFT President Raoul Teilhet.

The union is now accepting applications for the 2018 Scholarship Program. Since the program was established in 1997, the CFT has helped hundreds of students achieve their higher education goals by awarding them Raoul Teilhet Scholarships.

High school seniors and continuing college students who are children or dependents of CFT members in good standing are eligible to apply. Scholarships in the amounts of $3000 or $1000 are awarded for any one year of higher education.

Applications can be downloaded from our website, and members may call any of our offices to request that an application be mailed to them. Please take a few minutes to read the application so that you know the type of information applicants are asked to provide. Members will be asking the local union president to sign the Member Verification Form to confirm that the parent or guardian of the applicant is a union member. (See page 7 in the applications.)

There are two applications and two deadlines

High school senior applications are due January 10, 2018

Continuing college student applications are due July 1, 2018

Despite regular notices in California Teacher, we urge you to publish scholarship information in your newsletters and on your websites so that those who are interested can take advantage of this opportunity and excellent member benefit.
