Tanases endow undergraduate need-based scholarship

The Theodore and Priscilla Tanase Scholarship Fund will provide need-based support to full-time undergraduates at the College of Engineering.| Short Read

Theodore T. Tanase (BSE ME ’63) and Priscilla B. Tanase of Seattle, Washington, with a $100,000 gift, have endowed the Theodore and Priscilla Tanase Scholarship Fund to provide need-based support to full-time undergraduates at the College of Engineering. They desire that first preference be given to students from the State of Hawaii, followed by the State of Washington. Ted is the founder of Ensocare, which provides web-based care coordination solutions to help manage patient care transitions, reduce length of stay and reduce readmissions. Priscilla enjoyed an early career in the fitness industry, and more recently as a family therapist.
