Eric Egan was a light in so many people’s lives and often inspired people to keep pushing forward, no matter their circumstances. Sadly, Eric passed away at the early age of 14 from graph vs host disease (GvHD) following a bone marrow transplant and cancer treatments. He fought for 7 hard years against these diseases.
In honor of Eric’s legacy, the Eric C. Egan Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to one student who is currently going through cancer treatment or who has completed treatment and who plans to continue studying.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a high school student who is currently undergoing cancer treatment or who has completed treatment with plans to receive a post-secondary education. To apply, please tell us about your current journey with cancer and how you plan to use these funds toward your future.

We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
