The New Haven Teachers Association currently sponsors two scholarships awarded to New Haven graduates.
- Polly Tung Scholarship
Established by the New Haven Teachers Association in memory of Polly Tung, a long-time teacher in New Haven. Polly taught at Alvarado Middle School and held a number of positions within NHTA, including President, three times. Students seeking the Scholarship must be interested in pursuing a career in teaching in a public school system, and have demonstrated a significant contribution to the community through community service hours. The current scholarship award is $2,000.
- Joanne Stephens Scholarship
Established by the New Haven Teachers Association in memory of Joanne Stephens, a long time Special Ed teacher and union officer at New Haven. A Special Education/Resouce students receive this scholarship. The current scholarship award is $500.
Expanding our Commitment to our Students
The NHTA is dedicated to serve the best interest of our members, our students and our community. By increasing the contributions to the scholarship fund we have the opportunity to increase the amount of the scholarship awards, the number of scholarships, or both. It is through your thoughtful contributions that we can make this a reality and “Honor Our Students”.
Beginning September 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014 all new or additional contributions for the 2014-2015 school year will be matched, up to $10,000, by a recent retiree. Please take this opportunity to double your contribution to “Honor Our Students”.
