The Andrew W. Eve Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to honor the full life Andrew (Drew to his friends) lived in his 33 years until he was overtaken by cystic fibrosis in 2007. Pursuant to Drew’s wishes, moneys donated in his memory were used to establish a scholarship to encourage CF patients to pursue education in fields associated with public safety.
Drew did not allow his CF to stand in the way of his dream of a career in public safety. After graduating from SUNY Geneseo with a degree in communications, he became a full-time dispatcher for the Livingston County 911 center. Drew also volunteered with the Livonia Fire Department where he attained the rank of Assistant Chief. He was also a certified State Fire Instructor and an Emergency Medical Technician. A highlight in Drew’s career was being decorated for his actions in dealing with a fatal bus/tractor trailer accident in January 2009.
Any CF patient is eligible to submit an application for an award of $1,000 from the Andrew W. Eve Memorial Scholarship. To be considered for an award, the applicant must attend an accredited college, including any campus of the State University of New York, with a major course of study in one of the following curricula:
- Fire Science
- Criminal Justice
- Emergency Medicine
- Police Science
Applications will be considered, and awards will be made by, a committee comprised of Andy’s family and friends. Click here for a copy of the application form.
