The 2014 Conference is Proud to Offer $2,000 Scholarships to 5 Deserving Students!

  • Print

August 16, 2013 Each year, the Annual California Charter Schools Conference honors five graduating seniors who exemplify the promise of charter schools in California through the Steelman Bragato Scholarship Program.

The scholarship is named in honor of Susan Steelman Bragato, the co-founder of the first charter school in California and the founder of the California Network of Educational Charters (which was renamed the California Charter Schools Association in 2003). Sue was one of the first people to recognize the importance of building a strong network of support among charter school leaders statewide. Sue also organized the first California Charter Schools Conference. In honor of her unprecedented contribution to the charter school movement, the Association named this scholarship for her. Sue died in 2005 after a battle with breast cancer.
