When in a dark place, having a support system can be the difference between hardship and healing.
The more we learn about mental health, the more we are able to be there for others who are in a challenging place. In order to encourage students with mental health struggles to seek out a support system, the Scholarship for Student Perseverance is giving to a high school senior or undergraduate student from Massachusetts who has used support in order to work through mental health challenges.
Students who are dealing with or have overcome mental health difficulties are eligible to apply if they are high school seniors or undergraduate students from Massachusetts. To apply, write about how your support system has helped you in your journey dealing with mental health and how you plan to use what you’ve learned through these experiences to give back to others.
How has your support system helped you overcome challenges with your mental health? How do you plan on using what you've learned through that support to give back in the future?
The application deadline is Apr 15, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 15, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 1 winner every yearly.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 15, 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.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
