Mark P. Tiner Scholarship

In 2006, the Mark P. Tiner Education Foundation was established by Sean Tiner, to recognize his brother’s dream of pursuing higher education. The Foundation’s mission is to provide graduating seniors with substantial financial assistance in pursuing their undergraduate degree.

As Mark was a multifaceted individual with various interests ranging from sports to community service, the Foundation will eventually award five substantial scholarships; each of which reflects a different aspect of Mark’s life. Scholarships will be awarded in the visual arts, the performing arts, athletics, community service and financial needs in Orange County, CA.
Through this scholarship, the Mark P. Tiner Education Foundation hopes �to recognize excellence and promote higher education throughout our community.�
