Christa McAuliffe Scholarship
Christa McAuliffe, teacher-astronaut of the Challenger crew, symbolizes the dedication of educators to America. McAuliffe, along with six other crew members, was killed on Jan. 28, 1986 when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after launching from Cape Canaveral, Florida. To commemorate her pioneering spirit, UTLA established the Christa McAuliffe Memorial Scholarship Fund. The scholarships assist students in continuing their studies, increasing their knowledge and expanding their abilities.
