There’s a great website by The Diabetes Scholars Foundation Scholarship Program. It’s available to incoming freshmen seeking a higher education at an accredited four year university, college, technical or trade school. This scholarship recognizes students who are actively involved in the diabetes community, who have high academic performance, who participate in community and/or extra-curricular activities and who have demonstrated that they are successfully managing the challenges of living with diabetes. Diabetes Scholars Foundation scholarships are not based on financial need.
Filling out the application automatically submits it to other Diabetes scholarships, including big pharma companies like Lilly and Novo Nordisk. You can check it all out on this website link: http://www.diabetesscholars.org/college.html
Here’s the hitch- this website is aimed at High School seniors, not enrolled students like you. But it may be a good way for you to check out WHO gives out scholarships, and then you could approach them independently of the Diabetes Scholars Foundation.
JDRF offers 4 Scholarships each year for the following:
The JDRF Medical/Research Scholarship ($1,000) - awarded to a student majoring in Healthcare
The JDRF Advocacy Scholarship ($1,000) - awarded to a student majoring in Political Science
The JDRF Outreach Scholarship ($1,000) -aawarded to a student majoring in Mental Health (Psychology/Social Work)
The JDRF Lance Underwood Rising Star Scholarship ($5,000) - awarded to an incoming freshmen with T1D
You may be eligible for the first three scholarships since they’re not restricted to incoming freshmen. ALSO- The deadline for scholarship for the coming year has already past (April 15, 2014). But you should definitely start the search and application for the following year.
