Recognition for Outstanding Achievement
In 1983, TELACU established its Education Foundation in response to crisis-level dropout rates for Latino students in college. The company recognized that socioeconomic factors of family responsibility, cultural identity and financial stress create very real conflicting challenges to academic life for first-generation students. In response, the TELACU Scholar is a first generation student who achieves academic success and shows professional promise. The recipient receives a scholarship of $6,000.
