This scholarship, created in honor of OI Community Member Edward D. Cranston, is for students with osteogenesis imperfecta who are applying to or have been admitted to a college or university. Edward was born in 1962 with severe OI and challenged himself by pursuing all educational opportunities available to him to achieve his goal of working as a health care professional. He has dedicated his career to working with children with complex respiratory conditions and is currently held in high regard both by professionals in the field, as well as the families of the many children with whom he has worked.
