Awarded annually, the Onny and Oboe Scholarship Fund provides the means for heart transplant patients, and their spouses and/or children, to pursue post-secondary education. The scholarship was created to enhance the lives of those directly affected by heart disease, whose dreams and ambitions were put on hold by medical necessity.
The Scholarship, open to all qualifying candidates residing in the United States and planning to study in the United States, recognizes perseverance, optimism and resilience maintained amid great odds. Selection is based on financial need, interests and demonstrated creativity.
The Onny and Oboe Scholarship Fund was established by Michael Tittinger and is managed by The Philadelphia Foundation. All donations are tax-deductible.
