Adam T. Hallberg was a beloved brother who tragically died by suicide in 2008.

Adam wasn’t able to get the care that he needed in order to effectively treat his mental illness. Sadly, Adam’s experience is a common one, as many people who struggle with their mental health don’t seek help due to the inaccessibility of treatment, the costs of support, and/or the stigmatization of mental illness.

This scholarship aims to honor the memory of Adam T. Hallberg by supporting students who are pursuing higher education in the mental health field.

Any undergraduate or graduate student in Iowa or Illinois who is pursuing an education and career in mental health services and has internship or volunteering experience in the mental health field may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us how your experience with mental health has impacted your beliefs, relationships, and career goals.
