Higher education can be difficult for any student to complete, but students who are pursuing a degree while also dealing with chronic illness or medical issues are faced with a different set of challenges.
With the rising pressure of schooling and education, students who are dealing with chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes, heart disease, etc. are at a disadvantage when it comes to higher education. Studies have shown that more than one fifth of educational dropout is attributable to childhood health conditions.
This scholarship aims to support underprivileged students so they can complete their education and make an impact through their careers.
Any high school junior or senior who has a medical condition, such as asthma, may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how your medical condition has affected your life and what your goals for the future are.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
