Students who show courage when dealing with epilepsy and seizures, a strong commitment to their education, and perseverance in eliminating the obstacles epilepsy and seizures may present are welcome to apply for the "Memo, I'm Still Here" Epilepsy Foundation Scholarship. The applicant must be a senior in high school or currently be enrolled at a trade school, college, or university and in good standing. They must have epilepsy, be under a physician’s care, and currently undergoing treatment and/or taking anticonvulsant medications.

Apart from completing the application, applicants must also submit: a transcript; a physician's statement (must have epilepsy, be under a physician's care, and currently undergoing treatment and/or taking anticonvulsant medications); a letter of reference (suggestions for references letters might be from a teacher, clergy, volunteer experience); and a verification of acceptance to a college/university (such as an acceptance letter).
