In November 2009, eitas unexpectedly lost one of its most valued staff member to leukemia. Michael Haseltine had been employed by eitas for 12 years and was serving as the Deputy Director when he passed. This scholarship fund is dedicated to the loving memory of Michael Haseltine -- father, grandfather and advocate for individuals with developmental disabilities. Michael's deep passion and commitment for supporting persons with developmental disabilities was contagious. His dedication and support to eitas and the people we serve will always be remembered.

Scholarships from this fund are awarded annually to Jackson County, Missouri residents who are either a student with a developmental disability intending to further their education at a two-year or four-year college or university, or a vocational/technical school; or students intending to further their education at a two-year or four-year college or university, or a vocational/technical school whose major studies focus on working in the developmental disability field.
