More than 25% of students in college have been diagnosed or treated professionally for their mental health.
The more attention and support we give to people struggling with their mental health, the closer we become to creating an open, more accepting society. The Mikey Taylor Memorial Scholarship aims to give support to students who have struggled with their mental health and have grown through this journey.
First generation undergraduate students and high schoolers who have overcome mental health challenges are eligible to apply. In your application, write about how your mental health experiences have influenced various aspects of your life.
How has your experience with mental health influenced your beliefs, relationships, and career aspirations?
The application deadline is May 12, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jun 11, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 11, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
