Haywood Reed Jr. lost his life after encountering struggles with his mental health. 

Unfortunately, over 47,500 people die due to mental struggles every year in the US, making it the tenth leading cause of death and even the second leading cause of death for those between ages 10 and 34. Due to the remaining social stigma around mental struggles, too many people go without necessary treatment and care, contributing to the high rates in the US.

This scholarship aims to support high school and undergraduate students in Louisiana who are advocates for mental wellness.

Any undergraduate, high school junior, or high school senior in Louisiana who has at least a 2.5 GPA may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us about a healthy habit you’ll adopt to benefit your mental and emotional health and how you’ll make a safe space for others to manage their mental and emotional health.
