Edward D. Cranston College Scholarship Program

The OI Foundation is excited to announce that applications are available for the Edward D. Cranston College Scholarship. This scholarship was created in honor of Edward D. Cranston, who was born in 1962 with severe osteogenesis imperfecta. Edward challenged himself by pursuing all educational opportunities available to him to achieve his goal of working as a health care professional. He dedicated his career to working with children with complex respiratory conditions and is held in high regard both by professionals in the field, as well as the families of the many children with whom he has worked. 

This scholarship is for students with osteogenesis imperfecta who are applying to or have been admitted to a college or university. Applicants must articulate a need for scholarship assistance to meet their academic goals, be committed to full-time college enrollment and show proof of enrollment in college to receive the funds. Preference for the scholarship is based on a combination of merit and financial need. Applicants are required to submit at least two letters of recommendation, their most recent official high school transcript, and a personal essay along with the application form.
