Velma Castaneda - Titone Memorial Scholarship

The Educational Enrichment Foundation will award one $500 scholarship in memory of Velma Castaneda-Titone, the much-revered educator and retired principal of the Tucson Unified School District.  The student to whom the scholarship is awarded will be notified by the end of May.  The scholarship may be used to purchase text books and other related books by a student attending an accredited public or private college or university, for the first year only.  Payment will be made directly to the institution and may be applied to tuition, fees, and books.  The funds will be available prior to the start of school in the fall of 2019.

NOTE:  The family of Velma Castaneda-Titone may opt to turn this into an annual renewable scholarship for successful recipients who maintain a 3.0 GPA in college.
