The Elizabeth Lulu Scholarship Foundation was founded in 2006 after Elizabeth Lulu passed away at age 13 due to complications from Cystic Fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis is the number one genetic killer of children in the United States. Another unfortunate result of the disease is that children with CF often abandon their education believing that the disease will end their lives before adulthood, rendering education unnecessary. This foundation grew out of the realization that many teens with Cystic Fibrosis need extra incentives to continue a course of education. The ELSF awards money to teens diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis as an extra motivation to continue their individual educational goals. The ELSF was founded to honor the memory of Elizabeth, who fought gallantly against the disease and never let her diagnosis define her life. Our goal is to provide, in her memory, the inspiration and stimulus for children afflicted with Cystic Fibrosis to form and complete their educational goals in spite of the disease.
The Elizabeth Lulu Scholarship Foundation has awarded 2 scholarships a year since 2007. Please go to News & Events for updates on some recent recipients.
