Despite living in the most prosperous period of history, millions of people are struggling.
Today, conversations around mental health are unfortunately stigmatized and isolating for the 67 million people across the country who struggle to cope with mental health concerns every day.
Additionally, those who suffer also have to worry about what others may think of them because of the regrettable stigma around mental health dialogue.
To normalize conversation and dialogue around mental health, there must be distinct opportunities to support those who have been impacted by mental health struggles toward their largest goals and aspirations.
As a small solution, Suzie's Mental Health Awareness Scholarship will support one student in any field of study who has battled with mental health, has a loved one who has in the past or currently is experiencing mental health concerns, or is interested in pursuing a field that will support mental healthcare through practice or research (psychiatry, neuroscience, doctor, psychology, etc.).
To apply, please talk about your experience with mental health, how it’s impacted you, and why mental health awareness is important to you.
How has your experience with mental health influenced your beliefs, relationships, and career aspirations? How has mental health impacted you or a loved one? Why is mental health important to you?
The application deadline is May 25, 2022. Winners will be announced on Jun 25, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 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.
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.
