Meet the 2017 Jack & Julie Narcolepsy Scholarship Recipients
Project Sleep is proud to announce the 11 recipients of the 2017 Jack & Julie Narcolepsy Scholarship, a national scholarship program supporting students with narcolepsy while also raising narcolepsy awareness in high school and college settings. In just four years, the program has awarded 36 scholarships of $1,000 each to 36 students with narcolepsy entering college.
To help fundraise, Project Sleep’s founder and president, Julie Flygare took on a grueling marathon – raising over $3,000 for the scholarship and gaining national media attention via CNN’s Runner: Having narcolepsy is harder than a marathon. In addition, a wonderful $5,000 charitable contribution from Jazz Pharmaceuticals provided vital funding for this year’s program.
“When the Graham family and I founded the program four years ago, we planned to give one scholarship each year,” describes Flygare. “The fact that so many caring individuals, families, and corporations including Jazz have joined us to make a positive impact on so many more students with narcolepsy – it’s a dream come true and an honor to share the 2017 recipients with you today.”
