Mental health should be a priority for everyone, but the remaining stigma around mental illnesses has led to a lack of resources and support for those who struggle.
For students who are already struggling with their mental health, the stress created by the academic and financial requirements of college can be enough to lead to a mental crisis.
This scholarship aims to support the mental health of those who are pursuing higher education by relieving some of the financial stress of college.
Any student who struggles to balance a need to be perfect with the financial stress and anxiety they face while pursuing their education may apply for this scholarship.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 25, 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.
