Accepting Applications for the Sarah Gaulin Memorial Scholarship

January 19, 2016 Laval - The Gaulin Foundation is pleased to announce that it is once again accepting applications for the $1,000 Sarah Gaulin Memorial Scholarship – a national scholarship that promotes the resilience of individuals with mental illness pursuing post-secondary education.

The Sarah Gaulin Memorial Scholarship was established in honour of Sarah Gaulin, who died at age 26 after a longtime battle with mental illness. Along with her passion for Paralympic sport, Sarah actively pursued a career in the healthcare field. Notwithstanding her health issues, Sarah persevered and continued to attend and excel in her educational field of choice. Although she battled with mental illness, she never gave up on education and her dream of one day helping others.

The scholarship seeks to support and encourage the resilience of individuals with mental illness pursuing post-secondary education, which Sarah believed strongly in. Students must be registered in a post-secondary institution and provide documented proof of their mental illness. The scholarship will be awarded to outstanding applicants who meet the criteria of the program.

The awards will be paid directly to the post-secondary institution (in the students' accounts) that the recipients are attending to defray the cost of tuition fees for post-secondary study. In order to apply, students must be registered in a post-secondary institution and provide documented proof of their mental illness.

The scholarship will be awarded to outstanding applicants who meet the criteria of the program. Deadline for applications is April 1, 2016.

Details about the scholarship can be found at www.gaulinfoundation.org
