John D. Rockefeller once said, “I do not think that there is any other quality so essential to success of any kind as the quality of perseverance. It overcomes almost everything.”

Those living with chronic conditions embody the quality of perseverance, often cultivated by their experience overcoming the challenges brought on by their conditions. Chronic illness can create a difficult road, but this doesn’t deter the passion and effort of many who strive to make a difference.

These women are Chronic Bosses. Powerful, strong, and resilient. Kind and empathetic. Leaders and change-makers shaping our future.

The Chronic Boss Scholarship seeks to reward women living with chronic diseases who have persevered and succeeded. Women who have an entrepreneurial spirit, whether that is in launching an initiative, a campaign, a startup, a blog, a club, a fundraiser, or other endeavor. 

To apply, write an essay explaining how living with a chronic condition has shaped who you are today and highlight your entrepreneurial endeavors.
