Matters of Life & Death Scholarship Writing Contest
The goals of the Matters of Life & Death Scholarship Writing Contest are to help California students develop awareness of the issues surrounding aid in dying and to financially assist college-bound scholars. Each applicant must answer the question: Why should a mentally competent, terminally ill adult family member have the right to choose aid in dying? What would you say to another family member who disagrees?
To participate in the Matters of Life & Death Scholarship Writing Contest you must meet the following requirements:
- Currently attending a California high school (or home-school)
- Currently a high school junior or senior
- Planning to pursue a degree at an accredited college in the United States
