Lime Connect Pathways Scholarship

Scholarship Sponsored by Lime Connect

Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 13
Deadline : Apr 14, 2024

Lime Connect believes strongly in the potential of high school students who have all types of disabilities and is committed to supporting their future. In 2019, we were pleased to launch our inaugural Pathways Scholarship designed for current high school seniors who are pursuing a degree at a four-year university or college in either the U.S. or Canada. We have impacted 45 promising students through this award and we have increased our giving each year.

Multiple students are selected for this award each year and these awards are merit-based, however, financial needs will be taken into consideration.

Eligibility Requirements:

2024 Scholarship Applicants must match the following criteria:

  • Have, or consider themselves to have a visible or invisible disability*
  • Current high school senior in the U.S. or Canada graduating in the Spring or Summer of 2024
  • Accepted to, or applied and awaiting acceptance to, a 4-year university or college in the U.S. or Canada for the 2024-2025 academic year
  • Intending to be enrolled full-time in that 4-year university or college in Fall 2024

An individual with a disability is defined as someone who has or considers themselves to have, a long-term, or recurring, issue that impacts one or more major activities that others may consider to be a daily function); this definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. We know that 90% of disabilities on campus are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to apply.

Applications are OPEN. The deadline to apply is Sunday, April 14th, 2024 at midnight PST.
