THE PROGRAM AND ITS PURPOSE
The Bennett Clayton Foundation for Children with OI has established a scholarship program to assist students with Osteogenesis Imperfecta who plan to continue education in college or vocational school programs. Renewable scholarships are offered each year for full-time study at an accredited institution of the student’s choice.
All phases of the program are independently managed by Scholarship Managers (SM) – a division of Career Opportunities Through Education, Inc. SM is a national non-profit organization with extensive experience in the management of scholarship program. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability, or national origin.
Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic bone disorder characterized by fragile bones that break easily. It is also known as “brittle bone disease”. (See OIF.org website for more information.)
Established in 2003, The Bennett Clayton Foundation for Children with OI works to benefit all children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta. The DeBlieck Family organized BCF in honor of Bennett after he was diagnosed with OI at the age of one.
Financial support by generous individuals and corporations enables the foundation to provide support to OI families in the form of personal health grants, college scholarships, social and educational gatherings, research funding and financial assistance for conference attendees.
Above all Bennett Clayton Foundation is a community focused on supporting all OI individuals and families.
