I am a senior working on my BA in Psychology to help people with mental illnesses and coping through trauma. I have Arnold Chiari malformation and cold urticaria (autoimmune response). Both of these conditions affect me on a daily basis and my quality of life, but I try my hardest to be positive influence to many. This reward would help me tremendously help pay for my last year in college. After this year, I will have to have brain surgery which will cost an immense amount. I have to save money in any way I can so I can keep my health a priority.

Hi my name is Kailey Johnston. I am applying for this scholarship because I have had some tough medical journeys in my life that I had to overcome. When I was 11 years old I was diagnosed with PVNS. I had to have it surgically removed and required physical therapy. My freshman year of high school I was diagnosed with absence epilepsy. I struggled to focus a lot in school and some kids made fun of me. My one teacher even asked if everything was all right at home. I still ended my freshman year with a 4.0 GPA, but it was a lot of hard work. Winning this scholarship would mean so much to me because I have had so many ups and downs in my medical journey, side affects of medications. But to know that I have finally over come this and that I can go to college to be a physicians assistant would be huge.

Hi, my name is is Isabella. I have been diagnosed with Factor Seven Deficiency, and Von Willebrand's Disease. I have PTSD from many past traumas. I have joint issues that happened because of my hemophilia disorders. My mother is a single-parent of seven kids(only four who still live at home) we have struggled a lot in the past, and I will be paying my tuition on my own. I am very excited for this scholarship even if I was to not receive it, I think it is amazing what you all are doing for these kids.

Hello, My name is Juliette. I was born with Glaucoma which effects my vision in my eyes. I was born with my left eye legally blind. I have gone through numerous surgeries throughout my life to protect my right eye. I plan on attending college and studying to become a Pediatric Nurse. I have worked so hard in school to get to where I want to be in life. I am determined and strong, I plan on giving back and helping those in need one day. Thank you.

I have Relapsing/Remitting Multiple Sclerosis and this scholarship would help me out greatly so I can focus less on having to pay for school (as a current University Freshman) and more on my treatments!

Ariana A  on 4/11/2020 7:54:43 PM

I would like to apply for this scholarship to raise awareness for Spina Bifida patients. I had surgery when I was 2 years old - the doctors told me I may not be able to walk again. Now, I run; I am a senior in high school, a varsity athlete, and plan to keep striving and beating the odds as I did throughout life.

This scholarship will be very helpful to me to become a nurse with my disability. I’ve struggled through so much and would love to pay it back by helping someone else just like me by becoming a nurse.

There are a lot of scholarships out there, some more conventional than others.

It may be awarded on how much you like a card game, or to whomever comes up with the most creative way to use a household product. It may even be for students interested in… potatoes? No joke, these five scholarships are some of the weirder ones on our site. Are you weird enough to apply? [...]
