The Phoenix Education Grant (PEG) is the first national scholarship endowment fund created for burn survivor students pursuing their education dreams.
We accept applications from burn survivor students pursuing their post-secondary education who have applied and been accepted to a 2-year college, 4-year college or university, techical or vocational school, or graduate program.
Due to the current global health pandemic, we are responding to our community's need to stay connected by expanding our virtual support and programming. Even in these uncertain times, we know that community is greater than isolation, and we continue to strive for a world where no one recovers from a burn injury alone. Phoenix Society has decided not to proceed with the PEG Scholarship program in 2020.
The Phoenix Education Grant is awarded annually and requires the submission of a PEG Scholarship Application. A PEG committee reviews applications and will grant scholarships for the upcoming academic year. Students who receive the scholarship are encouraged to help other burn-injured students by contributing to the PEG scholarship fund when they are established and able to do so.
In 2013, Phoenix Society partnered with AlloSource, one of the nation’s largest non-profit providers of skin, bone and soft tissue allografts. AlloSource pledged to donate $25,000 annually over 10 years to help support PEG.
PEG is also supported by the generous donations of individuals and corporations who share the Phoenix Society’s mission to empower burn survivors and help them return to a full life.
Barbara Kammerer Quayle created the scholarship fund in honor of her mother, whose name was Peg. Barbara's dedication to providing education opportunities and initial gift laid the foundation for the PEG scholarship fund.
