Boomer Esiason Foundation Scholarships

In order to alleviate the financial burden on students in the CF community so that they can focus on school, the Boomer Esiason Foundation will award a General Academic Scholarship to 15 students and award them $10,000 each. Winners will be chosen by a committee that includes people living with cystic fibrosis and without. The BEF Scholarship committee considers the applicant’s scholastic ability, character, leadership potential, service to the community and need for financial assistance. While a person’s health isn’t a determining criteria, we will ask that people with CF confirm their diagnosis to us.
