Diabetes Scholars offers a set of general and specific scholarships to high school seniors living with Type 1 diabetes who are headed to college/university in 2022. There is one application to be considered for any and all of the scholarships – all students who fill out the application will be considered for those scholarships that match them. In addition, Diabetes Scholars also offers one scholarship to a sophomore or junior standing veterinary student.

The application for the Class of 2022 has closed. Applicants can only be selected for one scholarship.
