College Scholarships for Students with Type 1 Diabetes

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 kids with Type 1, through scholarships of $5,000 each.

Individuals and organizations may create their own Scholarship Awards of up to $5,000 (view the current list of Awards). Please contact us if you are interested in creating an award.
