Guardian Teacher Scholarship Fund

Gifts to the Guardian Teacher Scholarship Fund encourage former foster youth to pursue careers in teaching by providing scholarships to those students studying in our Teaching Credential/MA program.

“My life experiences (as a former foster child) are the root of my passion to help students who are underrepresented due to poverty and cultural barriers. No words can truly describe my gratitude and appreciation for (this) generous gift … it has helped alleviate a lot of financial stress. I have never felt so special and honored in my life.” --Lynn Romano (Credential ’12, MA ’13), 2011-12 Guardian Teacher Scholarship recipient
