The Scholarship Committee manages the awarding of monies for deserving students, and others, determined by the committee in conjunction with the wishes of WCCFT members and the Executive Board. To apply for the WCCFT scholarship, follow the link below to the WCC Foundation Scholarships page, open the yellow application button, click on “opportunities,” and look for the Richard Rosell and Rafael Rodriguez Memorial WCC Federation of Teachers Scholarship:

We are asking for your support to continue this work with our students.  Due to WCCFT budget cuts the scholarship award is greatly reduced ($6000.00 to $500.00). By raising additional funds we can continue to empower more students to apply, to write and research about unionism and to move forward in their higher educational journeys. Here is WCCFT Scholarship Fund history!
