Passionate about mental health
Education Level:
High school senior (Class of 2024)

Mental health is often neglected and not prioritized, especially in the lives of busy students and other people balancing many responsibilities.

Mental struggles have long been stigmatized, which discourages those who suffer from talking to friends and family or seeking professional help. A lack of avenues for connection pushes those facing mental obstacles further into isolation, making it even more difficult to recover. Additionally, many people have trouble accessing help due to limited staff and the high costs of therapy, medicine, and other forms of care.

This scholarship aims to support students who are passionate about mental health and making an impact through their education.

Any recently graduated high school senior (Class of 2024) who is devoted to improving mental health outcomes may apply for this scholarship if they plan to pursue a four-year college program.

To apply, tell us about yourself and answer one of the questions below about mental health awareness.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Impact
