The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Retired Teachers Association (CHCRTA) has launched its Scholarship Program for 2024. The program is made possible through generous donations from members to support the future of education. CHCRTA was established on May 16, 1957, as the first retired teachers association in Tennessee and remains committed to its profession with the annual CHCRTA Scholarship Program.

Rick Rushworth, president of CHCRTA said, “The CHCRTA scholarships are a privilege for our organization to sponsor. Donating to the scholarship fund provides a wonderful opportunity for all of us to help other young teachers and those who aspire to become teachers just as many of us were helped along our teaching journey.”

CHCRTA Scholarships are available for prospective and licensed teachers including high school students in the Class of 2024, undergraduate students and graduate students. CHCRTA anticipates awarding scholarships ranging from $1500 to $2000 with a total value of $12,000. Specific requirements for each scholarship are available on the Hamilton County Department of Education website at www.hcde.org/CHCRTA. Scholarship application packets include a resume, transcript, letter of recommendation, and an essay. The CHCRTA Scholarship deadline is Monday, April 15, at 5 p.m. The winners will be announced at the CHCRTA Annual Picnic at Chester Frost Park in June.

CHCRTA members are encouraging all eligible students to apply for the scholarships; however, recipients may receive only one scholarship per year from the association. The time to begin the application process is now.
