On behalf of The Eric M. Suhl Foundation, it brings us great joy to announce that we have established an endowed scholarship in Eric’s name at the University of Texas. This scholarship is dedicated to the memory of Eric Matthew Suhl who passed away in 2016 at the age of 28.
Eric suffered with colitis for many years, and The Eric M. Suhl Scholarship is intended to help those who suffer from colitis, Crohn’s, IBS, or any chronic medical issue. Any undergraduate student in the UT system who suffers from these diseases, or who has a family member that suffers from these diseases, may apply. The scholarship will be administered by the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD), who works with students to help communicate to faculty and the campus in general where assistance or special provisions are needed for things like class attendance, test taking, dining, housing, and mobility. Based in the philosophy that all students should be assured equal access and opportunity, SSD works to eliminate physical, instructional, and attitudinal barriers by providing reasonable accommodations and fostering awareness within the University community.
The scholarship is a permanent endowed gift to UT. The Foundation made a donation to UT that will exist in perpetuity, and UT will use the investment earnings from the donation to give a student an annual monetary award to help offset the cost of tuition starting each Fall semester.
With your continued support, we hope to increase the endowment each year and grow the annual award to cover a full year’s tuition. Click HERE to learn more!
