Eric Steven Dostie of Easthampton, Massachusetts, a five-year-old boy with hemophilia, was tragically murdered on August 27, 1994. Eric's brief 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 opportunites.
The Eric Dostie Memorial College Scholarship was created to honor the memory of Eric Dostie by awarding financial assistance to students with hemophilia or a related bleeding disorder, or to their family members. Students must be citizens of the United States, and enrolled full-time in an accredited two- or four-year college program.
The scholarship will award $1,000 each to 10 students who can best demonstrate scholastic achievement, community service and financial need. Applicants must submit an essay describing how his or her education will be used to serve humankind and to encourage self-improvement and enrichment.
