PDF Print E-mail

The Scholarship Program was founded in 2011 by the Teach for Friendship Foundation in memory of Flora B. Ingram. Flora was a strong supporter of the non-profit Teach for Friendship Foundation which was founded by her husband. She and Bill spent many happy years going back and forth to China to teach and to be with  the many friends they had accumulated over the years. A constant source of thoughtful and intelligent guidance, Flora was loved by teachers and students alike. Back in Tucson, Flora graciously opened her home to many Chinese students studying at the University of Arizona.

For 2014 the Scholarship will honor one or more teachers chosen from applicants named as Exemplary Teachers by the Rodel Foundation.
