Background:
Has lost a sibling to suicide

Suicide is a significant but preventable cause of death in the US, affecting people of all age groups. 

In 2019 alone, 47,500 people died by suicide, making suicide the second-leading cause of death among people between the ages of 10 and 34. In order to save these lives, it’s vital that mental health resources are improved and that the stigma around mental illness is combated. 

This scholarship seeks to show support for those who have lost a sibling to suicide in order to raise awareness about the prevalence of suicide and the ways of persevering through loss.

Any student who has lost a sibling to suicide may apply for this scholarship opportunity. 

To apply, tell us how you persevered through the loss of a sibling to suicide and what advice you’d give to someone currently going through it.
