Aurora Area Retired Teachers' Association Scholarship Endowment Fund

Established 2010

aurora_area_retired_teacher.jpgThe Aurora Area Retired Teachers’ Association (AARTA) has been working for retired teachers in Kane County for over fifty years.

Due to their continued interest in education, members of the AARTA created the Aurora Area Retired Teachers’ Association Scholarship Fund in 2010 to assist students attending a two-year college, or a professional, trade or vocational school. In 2016, the fund was established as an endowment.

Eligibility is restricted to students who reside within the Community Foundation service area and within the boundaries of the following school districts: East Aurora 131, West Aurora 129, Kaneland 302, Batavia 101, Geneva 304 or St. Charles 303.

This fund also provides a meaningful way to honor the lives of former members of the Aurora Area Retired Teachers’ Association who have passed away.
