Lilly Reintegration Schizophrenia Scholarships for Disabilities

Eli Lilly and Company sponsors the Lilly Reintegration Schizophrenia Scholarships for Disabilities. These disability scholarships are only available for those who are recovering from Schizophrenia, Schizoaffective Disorder, Bipolar Disorder or Schizophreniform. These Schizophrenia scholarships are issued for every school year between October and January.

The Reintegration Scholarships are built upon the principle that those who have been affected by mental illness are still capable of reaching goals and dreams. Mental illness, like any disability, can make the journey to obtain those goals and dreams a lot tougher. The Center for Reintegration believes that this journey can be a lot easier with support and education. The Lilly Reintegration Scholarship is designed to offset the tuition, lab fees and books for those who are attending school and suffering from mental illness. The disability scholarship was created over 12 years ago. In order for those afflicted with this disease to reintegrate back into society education and vocational skills must be supported. That is where the Center for Reintegration and the Lilly Reintegration Scholarship come in.

Anyone who suffers from a mental illness has certainly heard the word ‘integration’. Integration is an important element in the process of recovery. The goal is to allow the afflicted to have a meaningful life. To allow them to be independent and live in a place that it is theirs. They need to be able to function on a daily basis within the community of family and friends. All of these relate to the process of reintegration.

The Lilly Reintegration Scholarship program was created to provide assistance for a varied range of opportunities in education. This applies to those who are working towards a certificate or degree from an accredited education facility. Online educational programs are not included in this disability scholarship. It does cover High School equivalency programs, Trade or Vocational School programs, Associate’s Degree and Bachelor’s Degree programs or Graduate Degree programs. This is not a full schizophrenia scholarship. It will not cover any living expenses, only books, fees, tuition and lab supplies. Other eligibility requirements include that the student must be receiving medical treatment for the disease. This must include some form of medication and psychiatric follow up. The applicant must also be participating in rehabilitation or reintegration activities. The applicant should also be a US Citizen attending school in the USA.

The Center for Integration normally receives around a thousand applications for the Lilly Reintegration Schizophrenia Scholarship each year. The amount of money awarded to each successful recipient varies widely as does the amount of awards that are issued. Typically around 70 schizophrenia scholarships may be awarded. If you feel that you are eligible for this disabled scholarship you may file your application after October 1st. You can find your application at Lilly Reintegration Schizophrenia Scholarships for Disabilities. The Center for Integration firmly believes that mental illness need not be a hindrance to your success.

Opportunity
