To help students express themselves on the topic of Alzheimer’s disease, the AFA Teen, a branch of the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America, has created an annual scholarship. The organization will be offering $5,000 to one college-bound student looking for financial aid to afford their postsecondary education.

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.
