BEF Establishes Gunnar Esiason Scholarship Fund at Boston College

With Gunnar Esiason and his sister, Sydney, both attending Boston College, the Boomer Esiason Foundation has established a $10,000 scholarship to support the studies of a BC student.

To be eligible for the Gunnar Esiason Scholarship Fund, a student must have cystic fibrosis or have an immediate family member with CF.

He or she also must already be admitted or enrolled at Boston College and qualify for financial aid by demonstrating financial need, as determined by the University’s Office of Financial Aid.

The application deadline for the annual Gunnar Esiason Scholarship is March 15.

The Boomer Esiason Foundation awards more than $250,000 in scholarships each year to outstanding students with CF who strive both for therapy compliance and for academic success.
