The AFA Teen encourages eligible junior and senior high school students to share their experiences and thoughts on the subject of Alzheimer’s by applying.  Students will need to write a 1,200 to 1,500 word essay about the impact that Alzheimer’s disease has had on their lives.  A completed application and a short, 200 word biography will also be required.

Prize:

1. $5,000

Eligibility:

1. Applicant must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident 2. Applicant must enter an accredited four-year college or university within 12 months of the scholarship deadline 3. Applicant must be a current high school student

Deadline:

February 15, 2008

Required Material:

1. An application form 2. A 200 word biography 3. An official high school transcript 4. Four copies of a 1,200 to 1,500 word essay 5. Copy of a United States birth certificate or permanent residency documentation 6. A cover letter with the name, address and essay title

Further information about the application form and about contacting the scholarship provider  can be found by conducting a free college scholarship search. Once a student has completed the search, this award will appear in their scholarship list, provided the student is eligible.
