In Gunnar Esiason’s words: “I think people with cystic fibrosis should be open about their disease and willing to discuss it with the people around them. Awareness comes from education and all of us living with cystic fibrosis are in a position to educate the general public, and also offer a fresh perspective on life. I so firmly believe in the value of friendship that this scholarship will require applicants to submit a peer recommendation from a close friend.”

The Boomer Esiason Foundation scholarship committee will review the applications and choose a number of finalists to be interviewed. In some cases, Gunnar will be conducting the interviews and very much appreciate a person’s ability to communicate effectively about cystic fibrosis and life in general.
