Mental health is a very important, and prevalent, issue, and though there have been great strides in recent years for treatment and awareness, there can still be a stigma surrounding mental health. Students struggling with mental health problems—such as bipolar disorder and/or depression—while also pursuing higher education should be applauded and supported. That’s why we’ve gathered a few scholarships for students with bipolar disorder and/or depression to check out.

This scholarship looks for students currently enrolled in school and show active participation in medical treatment for their bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or schizoaffective disorder.
