Jerry Greenspan Student Voice of Mental Health Award
The purpose of the scholarship is to raise more awareness of mental health among students, and to reward outstanding students who are actively involved in speaking out about mental health on campuses, reducing prejudice that often surrounds emotional disorders, and raising visibility about the disease.
The scholarship was created in 2008 by Carol Ullman and the late Joseph Greenspan in memory of their son, Jerry Greenspan. The award is designed to encourage more students on campuses across the country to help tackle the issue of mental disorders. In addition to the scholarship money, one student each year also receives recognition on The Jed Foundation’s website and a trip to New York to attend JED’s Annual Gala.
The scholarship is offered through the Jed Foundation which was founded in 2000 by Donna and Phil Satow to remember their son Jed whom they lost to suicide. The non-profit organization is located in New York City.
The deadline for this scholarship is usually in MARCH of each year, and the award amount is usually $3,000.
