Sarah Eber was a beloved fiancé who graduated from Towson University in Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in family and human services with a focus on child life and family collaboration. 

After a near-death experience in her formative teenage years, it grew incredibly dear to her heart to give back to children who have endured similar life obstacles. Unfortunately, Sarah passed away just six days before her wedding and wasn’t able to give back the way she wanted to in her life. 

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Sarah Eber by supporting students who share her passion for helping children.

Any high school or undergraduate student who is majoring in a health and/or family services-related field (social work, pediatric healthcare, etc.) may apply for this scholarship, but applicants with work experience or a background in childhood illness/injury are preferred.

To apply, tell us about a time when you faced adversity, how you viewed it, what your plan of action was, and how it impacted your perception of life.
