The Elizabeth Nash Foundation (ENF) awards scholarships to assist persons with Cystic Fibrosis
(CF) to pursue undergraduate and graduate degrees. Grants ranging from $1,000 to $2,500 are
awarded annually. Since the program's inception in 2005, more than 100 grants have been awarded.
The Elizabeth Nash Foundation Scholarship program is open to individuals with CF who are in-going or
current undergraduate or graduate students at an accredited US-based college or university. Given
limited resources, the program is currently only open to US citizens. Funds to support Associate
Degrees are not currently available.
In selecting applicants, the Elizabeth Nash Foundation Scholarship Committee takes into consideration
each applicant’s scholastic record, character, demonstrated leadership, service to CF-related causes
and the broader community, and need for financial assistance.
In addition to completing a short data form, applicants are required to submit a one page essay, letter
of recommendation from a teacher, letter confirming CF diagnosis, and an academic transcript. In
addition, applicants are required to submit a copy of their FAFSA and specific details of fees and tuition
costs from their academic institution. A checklist of all application requirements is included in the
application available here.
Scholarship recipients must be willing to support the Foundation, at the Board of Directors’ request, by
writing an article for publication by the Foundation, writing up to 10 thank you notes to donors and/or 5
– 10 fund raising letters in support of ENF, speaking at one local event, or in some other manner
nominated by the recipient.
