Scholarship for College Students Living with a Neurological Disorder

The latest from http://brainblogger.com!

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 livebellasoul@gmail.com with the following three items:

1) Demographics:
– Name
– Date of Birth
– University/College
– Year/Grade
– GPA
– Neurological Disease/Disorder

2) Proof of Enrollment:
– Demonstrates full-time, college enrollment.
– Does not need to be a transcript.

3) Essay:
– 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!
