Living with diabetes can make everyday activities more challenging due to the need to manage blood glucose levels. High costs of healthcare, insulin, diabetes devices, and supplies only make things more difficult.
Students living with diabetes have to deal with all this and more. They are often living away from home, feeling pressure to get good grades, and working tirelessly to pay for school.
Regardless of these challenges, individuals with diabetes rise to the occasion. They are some of the strongest people in the world. Not only do they face these challenges, but they conquer them and rise.
Individuals living with diabetes deserve to be recognized for their resilience and determination to keep going even when things get tough.
The Skin Grip Diabetes Scholarship will be awarded to 20 individuals who live fearlessly and fight to make the world a better place despite their diagnosis.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a high school senior or any undergraduate in a 2- or 4-year degree program who has diabetes. To apply, please upload a short video (can be filmed via cell phone, Zoom, etc) two minutes max, answering this question:
How do you live fearlessly with diabetes?
The application deadline is Mar 3, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,170 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 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.
