Immigrants have been a vital part of the United States since the country's inception.

People immigrate to the United States for a variety of reasons, including the search for economic opportunity, novel experiences, escape from unsafe conditions, and more.

And while many immigrants have unlocked opportunities and built better lives in the United States, this process often comes with a cost. Immigrants have to navigate anti-immigration policies, unequal access to opportunity, and cultural hostility and resentment. Collectively, this can take a big mental toll.

The Mahlagha Jaberi Mental Health Awareness for Immigrants Scholarship exists to support more awareness about the mental health of immigrants in the United States. The scholarship will support one immigrant who has faced or is currently facing challenges with mental health.

All first or second-generation immigrants in any field of study are eligible to apply for this scholarship. To apply, you will have the opportunity to write about your experience as an immigrant, challenges with mental health, and what you hope to achieve in the future.
