About the Fund

Background

The Kevin M. Eidt Memorial Scholarship Fund was established through the generosity of the many people Kevin touched in his short life. Kevin, an 18-year-old deanís list freshman in the honors program at Boston College, passed away from cardiac arrest on January 23, 1997 while playing intramural basketball. Kevin set the example of the passion and sincerity we should bring to each day. He was an individual with vision, commitment, abiding hope, aspirations, and compassion. And when we look back, it was a life, albeit a glimpse of life, by which people can be measured and judged by.

Mission

The mission of the Kevin M. Eidt Memorial Scholarship Fund is to preserve Kevinís spirit by paying tribute to achievements in academics, athletics, arts, and the virtues of service and faith that were the essence of Kevinís life.

Fund Facts

With the ten scholarships, valued at $124,000, awarded to the class of 2015, Kevinís Fund will have provided over $1.6 Million in financial support over 120 exemplary young men and women matriculating at over 50 diverse colleges and universities in Kevinís memory. The dramatic growth in scholarship awards is directly related to the financial success of our annual benefit dinner dance, which began in 2000 and funded scholarships for the class of 2001. As a result of this generosity, Kevin's Fund has awarded the following scholarships.
