College students often maintain hectic schedules filled with rigorous classes, mountains of homework, and even jobs to support themselves while attending school. 

On top of this, women face unique challenges in academia. As women keep up with their academic responsibilities, extracurricular activities, social lives, and personal growth during college, their mental health can be heavily affected. Research shows that female college students experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues when compared to male peers. The pressures of society, high expectations of women, and the financial stress of tuition and living costs often affect women’s mental health.

This scholarship aims to recognize the importance of mental wellness for academic success and personal development by supporting female students who recognize the importance of mental health and prioritize it while attending college.

Any female high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident and is dedicated to her mental health may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how your mental health affects your academics and personal life and how you actively prioritize your mental health.
