CFEO Education Career Scholarship


The Caldwell Foundation for Educational Opportunity, Inc., known also as the CFEO, was organized in 1992 to administer memorial and other funds in the interest of Caldwell School District students, faculty, staff and patrons. The Foundation adopted a Mission Statement which reads, in part, “…..(support the) pursuit of education whether that pursuit is the key to virtue, to living the good life, to advance society or is directed to intellect or the character of their soul, or to things useful or the essentials in their lives, or the lives of others.” The student chosen to receive this award will be a student who has invested personal time in tutoring or teaching in community situations, such as Sunday School or recreational programs. The student will be planning on pursuing a teaching/education related degree. Participation in the Teacher Cadet program of the Caldwell School District is an advantage for this scholarship.
