The California Technology Foundation receives gratification in providing scholarships to students who wish to begin their post-secondary education. Scholarships help students fulfill their dreams. Not only do scholarships help students, but they also have a positive impact on the student’s family. Family is important to students and when they get a better education, they can assist their parents and the community. That is why CTF highly believes in having and maintaining a scholarship program to assist student who wish to begin their post-secondary education.
