The Eric Dostie Scholarship will be awarded to students who can best demonstrate scholastic achievement, community service and financial need. Applicants must submit an essay describing how their education will be used to serve humankind and to encourage self-improvement and enrichment. This scholarship offers financial assistance to students who either have hemophilia or a similar bleeding disorder or have a family member with a bleeding disorder. Students must be citizens of the United States, have a 2.5 GPA and enrolled full-time in an accredited two- or four-year college program. Applications run from November until the due date.
Eric Dostie's life forever touched many others with joy, humor and unending love. Eric used to tell his parents and grandparents that he might grow up to be a scientist and invent a cure for hemophilia in the form of a "chocolate pill." Although Eric's dream will never be realized, it has the chance to live on in the recipients of the award, who pursue a college degree to broaden their education and career opportunities.
