Andrej Cavarkapa ’09 Memorial Endowed Scholarship

The Andrej Cavarkapa ’09 Memorial Endowed Scholarship was established in 2017 by the Cavarkapa family following Andrej’s death on January 31, 2017, and has received support from many people who knew and admired Andrej in his life and for his devotion to teaching. Andrej was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzcegovina in 1987, the son of Branko and Aleksandra Cavarkapa, and was four years old when his family moved to the United States. He graduated from Eastern in 2009 with a B.A. in Biology and Biochemistry and received his master’s degree in Education from Eastern in 2012. Andrej always strived to help people and to make a difference in their lives, and this led him to become a Science teacher at RHAM High School. Andrej was passionate about his job and making physics and chemistry accessible to all students. He had many interests including art, winter sports and music. This scholarship will assist Biology majors with financial need, with a preference for RHAM graduates.
