December 17, 2021

If you know a student who has type 1 diabetes, you know how much this disease complicates their life. There’s the ongoing need to manage blood glucose levels, not to mention the avalanche of costs for doctor’s appointments, insulin, and diabetes devices.

To make life just a little easier for T1D students, Skin Grip is offering $1,000 scholarships to 20 individuals. Requirements are as followers:

  • Must have a type 1 diabetes diagnosis
  • Must be a senior in high school OR undergraduate enrolled in a degree program (either 2 or 4-year)
  • Must submit a video (two minutes or less) showing how you live fearlessly with type 1 diabetes.
  • Video can be filmed via cell phone, Zoom, etc. and is due by March 2, 2022. Submissions can be made through bold.org. Winners will be announced on March 31.

We believe that diabetes shouldn’t hold you back from anything, including thriving during your college years. We’re excited to be helping more T1D undergraduate students live life without limits.
