Battling mental illness, drug addiction, or alcohol addiction

Katelynn Berry passed away at the age of twenty-six after a tough battle with mental illness and addiction. 

Higher education already comes with many responsibilities and difficulties, but is far more difficult for those battling addiction or mental illness. Illnesses and prescribed medication can affect energy levels, concentration, psychological well-being, and one’s ability to hold a job.

This scholarship aims to honor the life of Katelynn Berry by spreading awareness about the threat posed by mental illnesses and addiction.   

Any high school or undergraduate student in North Dakota who is battling a mental illness or in recovery from drug or alcohol addiction may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, tell us how mental health struggles, drug addiction, or alcohol addiction has affected your life and how you’re working to triumph over your illness.
