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.

We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
