ADHDAdvisor.org’s Quarterly Mental Health Scholarship for Women
The Mental Health Scholarship for Women is a quarterly award for student women who recognize the importance of mental health and prioritize it while attending college.
College students often maintain hectic schedules filled with rigorous classes, mountains of homework, and even jobs to support themselves while attending school. We further recognize the unique challenges women face in their pursuit of education, and we hope to support and empower those committed to their mental health as they push forward with their educational goals.
As women keep up with their academic responsibilities, extracurricular activities, social lives, and personal growth during college, their mental health can be heavily affected. Research shows that female college students experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues when compared to male peers. The pressures of society, high expectations of women, and the financial stress of tuition and living costs can affect women’s mental health.
We believe that mental wellness is needed for academic success and personal development, and we hope to give student women financial help to alleviate stress and allow them to continue to prioritize their mental health throughout college.
