Eating disorders affect millions of people around the world, leading to 10,200 deaths each year.

9% of Americans will have an eating disorder in their lifetime, often leading to health problems, depression, attempted suicide, or even death. 

This scholarship seeks to support individuals who have been impacted by eating disorders so they can pursue their undergraduate education. Lack of awareness and prevailing stigma around eating disorders prevent many who suffer from getting the help and support they need.

Any high school or undergraduate student who have been impacted by eating disorders and disordered eating are welcome to apply, but those who have survived or live with this unique struggle themselves are preferred.

To apply, tell us how eating disorders have impacted your life and how you will use those experiences to fight the stigma around eating disorders and support those struggling.
