Providing college scholarships to people with hearing loss so they have an equal chance in our hearing society.
The LTZ Foundation, established in 2003 as a 501(c)3 entity, has proudly supported over 58 deaf and hard of hearing student grantees at colleges across the country.
Currently we provide approximately $4200 for tuition per academic year per grantee, and aim to fund up to 4 years of college if good academic standing is maintained and funds are available in the Foundation.
