    Scholarship Fund

                There are no monthly scholarship raffles right now, but generous 279-R members continue to support our scholarship program at Cleveland State University. Thank you to the members who made donations to our Scholarship Fund. If you usually purchased raffle tickets at the monthly meetings, please consider sending a check to 279-R with the notation “Scholarship Fund” to the CTU office. Your support is greatly appreciated by CSU scholarship recipients.

    Newsletter and Website

                If you paid your dues but have not received monthly newsletters, please call the retiree line at the CTU office: 216-482-2281. Remember, we are not in the office every day, but will check messages when we are there. We have also experienced significant delays with USPS delivering the newsletters. We will continue to post information here on the CTU website, www.ctu279.org.
