THE NICHOLAS COSTA UNDERGRADUATE SCHOLARSHIP

Sponsored by Tris Pharma, Inc.

CHADD is now accepting applications for the Nicholas Costa Undergraduate Scholarship. In honor of Nicholas Costa’s outstanding dedication to help improve the lives of people with ADHD, an undergraduate scholarship program has been created to assist students with ADHD in obtaining a degree from a 2-year or 4-year college. The award will help to cover tuition expenses for the upcoming academic year (fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters).

Designed to encourage students with ADHD to pursue their passions and fulfill their educational objectives, the Scholarship represents an investment in our nation’s future leaders.

Through the program, CHADD supports up to five undergraduate students with:

  • $2,000-$5,000 scholarship to help support undergraduate tuition at a 2-year or 4-year college or university.

Each applicant must be a US citizen enrolled full-time at any accredited college or university. The applicant must have and maintain at least a 2.9 cumulative grade point average.

Deadline for applications for the fall 2020 semester is July 5, 2020.
Deadline for applications for the spring 2021 semester is September 5, 2020.

Each application package must contain the following (maximum 12 pages, includes transcript):
