College is full of challenges, academically as well as socially and mentally.

From the stress of maintaining good grades to the pressures of fitting in and being social to the responsibilities of extracurricular achievement, pursuing higher education is no easy task. Students who have been impacted by disability face additional obstacles on top of the struggles that their peers face.

This scholarship aims to support students who have overcome challenges in order to pursue higher education. 

Any BIPOC high school senior or undergraduate student who is first-generation, has at least a 3.5 GPA, is involved in community or extracurricular activities, and is directly or indirectly impacted by a mental or physical disability (themselves or a family member) may apply for this scholarship, but students from single-parent households are preferred.

To apply, tell us how your experience with mental health has influenced your beliefs, relationships, and career aspirations.
