  • Scholarship Description
  • The Breathe for Bea Scholarship Program was launched by the Breathe for Bea Foundation in 2018 in memory of our cherished Ashley “Bea” Briggs who passed away in early 2017 at the age of 29, after a courageous fight against complications brought upon by Cystic Fibrosis. Ashley never let CF stop her from pursuing her dreams and, after graduating from Sacred Heart High School in Kingston, Massachusetts, she went on to pursue and obtain a bachelor’s degree from Johnson and Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island. It is her spirit and determination that has driven the Breathe for Bea Foundation to establish this scholarship program, as we want to help others who are living with Cystic Fibrosis achieve their dreams of a higher education too.

    While Cystic Fibrosis presents physical and financial challenges, we want to encourage and reinforce the idea that people with CF can do anything they set their minds to while living with the illness and reach their goals. Academic scholarships are available to individuals diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, aged 25 and under, who are graduating from high school or continuing their higher education at a two-year, four-year or trade school. Graduating high school applicants must have attained a cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher over the course of their four years; enrolled college student applicants must currently hold a cumulative GPA of 2.5.

    Scholarships are for undergraduate study only. If selected as a recipient, the winner can re-apply / renew their scholarship in the school years to follow, up until a bachelor’s degree or equivalent is earned. Renewal is contingent upon meeting all criteria outlined in the application and is not guaranteed. If selected as a recipient of a Breathe for Bea Scholarship, the student(s) will receive up to $500 as a financial award. Exact amount will be communicated to the recipient(s) at the time of notification. As our Foundation grows, it is our hope to increase the maximum amount of assistance we can provide. Scholarships may be used towards tuition costs, housing, books, food expenses, or anything else directly related to attending school. Checks will be made payable, and mailed, directly to the recipient(s) of the scholarship. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.

Despite the possibility of earning free money for college, some current and prospective college students do not complete the FAFSA - perhaps because the form is "confusing and lengthy." Instagram influencers and college bloggers are stepping in and have teamed up with the U.S. Department of Education to encourage more students to fill out their FAFSA with the hashtag #ButFirstFAFSA.
