Scholarship for College Students Living with a Neurological Disorderby Shaheen E Lakhan, MD, PhD, MEd, MS | October 25, 2016
Bella Soul is a charity that empowers college students faced with chronic illness, physical disabilities, and disease through scholarships and emotional support. I have partnered with them to serve on and advise their scholarship committee on a voluntary basis. Their First Annual Luke G. Neurological Scholarship will award $500 to $1,000 to full-time students enrolled in college and living with a neurological disorder.
The application process is simple and starts with emailing Bella Soul at firstname.lastname@example.org with the following three items:
– Date of Birth
– Neurological Disease/Disorder
2) Proof of Enrollment:
– Demonstrates full-time, college enrollment.
– Does not need to be a transcript.
– Three-pages, double spaced about the triumphs and struggles of living with a neurological disease/disorder.
– Give examples of how your disease/disorder has impacted your education, your social life, and how you have learned from these challenges.
– Include what advice you would tell someone who is struggling with the same neurological disorder.
The other members of the scholarship committee and I will review the applicants the first week of January. The deadline for applying is by December 31st (end of day). Looking forward to reading your stories and funding your future!
