Ethel Hayes Destigmatization of Mental Health Scholarship

To apply for the scholarship, you will be asked to write a short essay about how your journey with mental health has impacted your beliefs, relationships, and aspirations.
Just last year, the Gordon Rich Foundation provided $236,000 in college scholarships. Each Gordon A. Rich Memorial Scholarship is worth up to $50,000. These scholarships are awarded to bright, hardworking high school seniors who have demonstrated financial need. Applicants' parents and/or legal guardians must have/had a career in the financial services industry, defined as banks, investment banks, securities brokerage firms, insurance companies, fund and asset management companies, credit card and finance companies and similar businesses.
Students applying to the scholarship will be required to write an essay about how their experience with mental health has influenced their beliefs, relationships, and career aspirations. While not required, working or volunteering at organizations that increase mental health awareness, provide mental health support, or research mental health solutions will be a plus on student applications.
