Many people struggle with their mental health, yet there is still a significant stigma around mental illnesses.
More than 57% of adults who have a mental illness do not receive treatment for it. While there are many factors that affect whether or not people receive treatment, fear of judgment plays a large role.
This scholarship aims to support students who are interested in pursuing careers in mental health and fighting the stigma around mental illness.
Any high school senior who is interested in a career in mental health may apply for this scholarship. First-generation college students and students from historically excluded backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
