K4CF TO AWARD $10K IN SCHOLARSHIPS TO STUDENTS WITH CELIAC DISEASE

 

November 7th, 2012 – The Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation is extremely proud to announce that this year’s “Support-A-Student” College Scholarship program will be awarding $10,000 in college scholarships to students affected with Celiac Disease! ThisĀ one of a kind national scholarship opportunity helps students with Celiac Disease off-set the costs of gluten-free living when entering college. This scholarship award helps students subsidize their meal costs that are dictated by living with Celiac Disease.

As the daily struggles of living with Celiac Disease can sometimes be debilitating, each of the students applying should be students who exemplify perseverance, hard work, and dedication, all traits the foundation prides itself on.

The application deadline for this year’s scholarship award has now passed and we look forward to announcing our scholarship recipients this March! Sign up for our newsletter as well as email info@kicking4celiac.org for up to date information on the Kicking 4 Celiac Foundation!

    We are so happy to learn about this scholarship. Lucy was diagnosed with celiac in 2nd grade and is now a highschool senior. This would really help her when she is away for college.

    I was diagnosed with celiac disease almost a year ago to the day. I have gone through a lot with it I am the only one in my family with celiac disease and it is very difficult being the only one in your house hold to have the disease. I am interested in the scholarship for college I am going to college this upcoming fall.

    I have just been diagnosed with celiac. Gluten Free living is terribly expensive, luckily my family is trying to be supportive by eating gluten free dinners with me, but it is really hard for us to find cheap gluten free food. I am going to college this fall, and I am really worried about being on this diet in a setting that I really can’t control.
