Lime Connect (Lime) firmly believes in the potential of students who happen to have all kinds of disabilities and is committed to supporting their future. In 2019, we were excited to launch our first Pathways Scholarship for current high school seniors aspiring to graduate from a four-year university or college in the US or Canada. The grant applications for 2020 are open and due by Monday, May 25, 2020.
Tom Wilson, Lime Connect’s global chairman, said;
“Access to higher education can play a critical role for young people with disabilities. We are proud to recognize the achievements of our outstanding Pathways Fellows with these awards.”
Lime Connect Pathways Scholarship recipients will each receive $ 1,000 to support their university / college studies. The awards are performance-based, but financial needs are taken into account.
The Pathways Scholarship is funded by proceeds from the annual Lime Connect Century Ride. Find out how you can participate to support next year’s grant recipients. Click here to learn more about the Century Ride.
