SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - UC Santa Barbara recognized dozens of students Friday morning, a special group of future teachers, all receiving fellowships through UCSB's Teacher Education Program.

61 students were awarded funds from 29 different fellowships during the Gevirtz School 2019-2020 Fellowship Breakfast.

The honors include the Alumni Fellowship in the Department of Counseling, Clinical & School Psychology (funded by CCSP alumni); the Delaine A. Eastin Fellowship which supports students pursuing an MA or Ph.D. in Education who show academic promise and are the first in their family to attend graduate school; and the Dr. Sabrina Tuyay Memorial Fellowship.

UCSB Education officials say what distinguished Sabrina was her passionate, 12 years of dedication, ensuring that teachers become critical thinkers and risk takers, pushing boundaries so that all students would be able to read, write and think. (Tuyay was the late wife of KEYT's Chief Videographer, Herb Tuyay.)

The 13 month long course is rigorous and considered one of the highest quality programs in the country. Each of the student recipients are working toward their teaching credentials.
