ERI/Kirk Smith Scholarship

One scholarship of particular interest to ERI students is the ERI/Kirk Smith Scholarship, for which applications are accepted in February of every year. The ERI Kirk Smith Student Scholarship was set up by the family shortly after Kirk's death.  

Kirk's widow, Jessie, who served faithfully on the scholarship committee, was also lost to us in a tragic event in April 2010. Donations in both Kirk and Jessie's honor can be made to the scholarship.
