Living with Type 1 Diabetes is challenging.
Managing a chronic disease has inherent challenges, but having to prioritize that within the context of a college experience can be particularly difficult. Especially during a pandemic, the many stresses that are brought forth can have an impact on Type 1 Diabetics.
Despite these challenges, T1D's are warriors who refuse to quit. They deserve recognition for their perseverance in fighting the many different battles they face in their lives.
To support college students with Type 1 Diabetes, the T1D Warriors Scholarship will be awarded to someone who is successfully managing their diabetes and influences others to do the same.
To be eligible for this scholarship, you must be a high school senior or undergraduate student who has Type 1 Diabetes. To apply, please write about how you’ve embraced the burden of your diabetes for the benefits that it provides.
