The CTA Miriam Wolfe Scholarship was established in 1989 in memory of CTA alumna Miriam Wolfe, who died in the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland.
Miriam’s mother, Rosemary Mild, often participates in the scholarship selection process, and gives the winners an autographed copy of her book “Miriam’s World – and Mine.” The scholarship is supported by concession sales at CTA events throughout the year. CTA grants two scholarships, $1,500 and $1,000, to two CTA kids who have participated fully and given back to the organization.
For 2019, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the award's inception, CTA will grant a third commemorative scholarship of $1,000.
