And while this increased connectedness gives us an opportunity to come together and support one another, it has also created a platform for people to spread negativity and divisiveness. Every day, millions of people are ridiculed and belittled because of their identity, beliefs, and looks. And sadly, these events are highly traumatic and have contributed to suicide becoming the second leading cause of death for college-aged youth . The antidote to this problem is complex, but it starts with increasing the amount of love and acceptance spreading through the world. The Sander Jennings Spread the Love Scholarship exists to ignite more love and acceptance in our world. High school and undergraduate students in any field of study are eligible to apply. Applicants will be asked to write a short essay about how their journey with self-love and acceptance has impacted their beliefs, relationships, and aspirations. https://bold.org/scholarships/sander-jennings-spread-the-love-scholarship/?msID=04aa8387-d340-40a1-81b7-077a9f43af02 ____________________________________________ Contact Date: 12/9/20 I'm excited to give you a heads up about a new scholarship for Huntington-Surrey High School students who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.
