  • Scholarship Description
  • The Jill M. Balboni Memorial Scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Jill Marie Balboni who lost her life long battle with cystic fibrosis in July 2013 at the age of 36. Jill was a lover of life and lover of learning. Jill received her Bachelors, Masters and Ph.D and still managed to enjoy every day with a smile while spending time with her family and friends between her time in the Tri-Delta sorority or her Homecoming Queen reign or her Organ Donation philanthropy work. The Jill M. Balboni Memorial Scholarship has been established by four of Jill's lifelong friends. They want to take Jill's enthusiasm for life and "can do" attitude and apply that to their mission of providing a college scholarship to a young adult with CF who embodies all that Jill stood for and accomplished in her life.

    -3.2 GPA or better in high school
    -Combined SAT score of 1750 or better or composite ACT score of 25 or better
    -Dedication to giving back to their community (volunteer work, speaking engagements, club, and organization participation, etc.)
    -Submit an essay of at least 500 words describing how you exemplify the spirit of Jill. Use concrete examples to show your enthusiasm for life and your "can do" attitude
    -Students will be required to attend school on a full-time basis and maintain a 3.0 GPA in order to maintain their scholarship
    -Must have medical documentations of CF
