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.

The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 6, 2021. 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.
