Bringing awareness to suicide and mental health struggles is crucial in order to save lives and create a happier, healthier society.

Suicide continues to claim many victims each year, cutting short their dreams and goals and leaving a permanent hole in their families and communities. Fighting this epidemic requires destigmatizing mental illness and encouraging passionate individuals to enter the mental health field. 

This scholarship aims to support students who are going to school in the mental health field in order to bring awareness to suicide, mental health, and ways for healthy grieving.

Any minority high school, undergraduate, or graduate student who is pursuing the mental health field may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us about yourself, your career goals, how this scholarship would help you, and why you’ve decided to pursue the mental health field.
