Looking for scholarship opportunities to support your education?
Project Sleep proudly runs the Jack & Julie Narcolepsy Scholarship, but there are many more well-deserving students with narcolepsy and idiopathic hypersomnia than we can support with limited funding as a small non-profit at this time. Please know we are cheering for you as you bravely advance your education. Thank you for your support!
Additional Scholarship Resources for Students with Narcolepsy and Idiopathic Hypersomnia
- A good place to start is studentaid.gov. There you can find all sorts of information on scholarships and grants, including how to avoid scams.
- Search the U.S. Department of Labor’s free scholarship finder. It allows you to enter keywords and filter by various categories (including an “affiliation required” for disabled – which pulls up a list of scholarships for people with various disabilities).
- You can also find scholarships/grants at the state level via the U.S. Department of Education State Contact Index which provides links to state education agencies, key state contacts, information centers, service organizations, press releases, and statistical information for each state.
- FastWeb is a reputable site where you can search their free national scholarship matching services to help find scholarships for college students.
- Importantly, if you are already enrolled in a school, check with your school’s financial aid office. Often, they are aware of unique scholarships that are available specifically for their students. Possible categories may include: disability, neurological condition, chronic illness, autoimmune condition, sleep disorder, and/or rare disease.
While there are too many scholarships available with various requirements to list them all here, we hope these suggestions provide a good starting point.
