2017 Brendan Hession Foundation Scholarship

$1,500 Educational Assistance Award to a Meningitis Survivor

The Brendan Hession Foundation Scholarship is given in memory of Brendan James Hession who died on March 17, 1997 of bacterial meningitis. He was seventeen years old. Brendan loved life, learning, music, making people laugh, and just being Brendan. He was a bright and gifted student who, at the time of his death, had qualified as a National Merit semi-finalist.

Brendan never had the chance to achieve his academic goals, but the Brendan Hession Foundation would like to assist other students – those who have survived meningitis – reach theirs.

The 2017 scholarship recipient must meet the following criteria.

  • Be a meningitis survivor
  • Be in pursuit of a secondary education at an accredited college, university, technical, or vocational school
  • Be a student in good standing at their current educational institution
  • Be in need of financial assistance
