Dr. Walter and Maritza Diaz Endowed Scholarship

The Dr. Walter and Maritza Diaz Endowed Scholarship was started in February 2022 at the time of Walter’s retirement from Eastern. The minimum endowed threshold of $25K was easily exceeded due in large part to a highly successful retirement dinner that was held in Walter and Maritza’s honor in April 2022. Dr. Diaz was a compassionate administrator and advocate for Eastern students and mentored hundreds of students as an advisor to the OLAS and MALES student clubs. From 2017 until his retirement, he was Vice President of Student Affairs. The recipient(s) must be Pell eligible and in good academic standing from Bloomfield, East Hartford, Hartford, New Britain, New London, or Waterbury.

Students are encouraged to file the FAFSA by March 1
