Velasco Scholarship Fund Fully Endowed

Manny Velasco retired this past year. For 33 years, he had served as tennis coach at UIS. In his honor, UIS Athletics established the Manny Velasco Endowed Athletic Scholarship. Friends, former students, and appreciative community members gave or pledged enough to endow the scholarship.

Because it qualified for the Access Illinois Scholaship Initiative, all awards will receive a 1:1 match (dollar for dollar) for the next ten years. Thank you, donors!
