The vision of Diabetes Scholars is to empower success through education for people living with type 1 diabetes.  The mission of Diabetes Scholars Foundation is to support activities related to education for and about children with diabetes. This includes  funding scholarships for diabetes higher education.

A cornerstone endeavor of the Diabetes Scholars Foundation is its student scholarship program. Ours is the only foundation that funds college scholarships for which only students in the United States with type 1 Diabetes are eligible. Our founders’ goal was that – in this one small area of life – diabetes could be an advantage. Since 2008 the Foundation has awarded over $1.6 million in college scholarships to students with Type 1, through scholarships of $5,000 each.

Our activities are supported through the generous donations of corporations and individuals.
