Donor Information

Erin's father and family created the Erin Marie Masling Scholarship Fund in her memory to recognize her determination to lead as normal a life as possible despite the challenges of living with cystic fibrosis. Erin attended Ithaca College and spent a semester in London. She was smart and a good student and accomplished much in her brief lifetime. The scholarship gives other students like Erin the opportunity to enrich their lives through education and to alleviate some of the financial burdens of attending college.
