Scholarship Information

Torrance Education Foundation is proud to provide dozens of scholarships every year to select TUSD High School graduates beginning their college pursuits.

In May 2018, TEF awarded a total of $39,000 in scholarship support to 22 students beginning their college careers. These awards were made possible in partnership with corporate sponsors, through the generosity of concerned community members, and from funds given by individuals in memory of loved ones for whom ensuring excellent education for talented students was a priority.

We congratulate our 2018 scholarship recipients, and gladly recognize the investment of the Corporate Partners and generous community members whose gifts to Torrance Education Foundation make this Scholarship Program possible.
