Announcing our newest program:
The Kids With Courage Foundation is pleased to give scholarships
to young people with Type 1 diabetes. The Type 1
Champions Scholarship program has been created to
help students realize their college dreams. Today's
economy is tough enough on young people and families.
Add in the need for a lifetime of good medical care and
expensive medications to stay alive and it is especially
challenging to save for college.
Love of learning.
These are the attributes that the Type 1 Champions
Scholarship Program rewards. We invite high school
seniors or college students with Type 1 diabetes
who meet the eligibility requirements to apply
for a Type 1 Champions Scholarship.

David is a seven-year-old boy who has a very sweet heart. He is a hard worker at school and at home. He pushes himself to do well in school and always is willing to help do chores at home. He also loves playing sports with his friends. He loves going to his games on the weekends and gives it all he has when he is competing. At home, he and his brother can play for hours with their animals, Magnatiles, and Legos. They also love building forts, watching movies, reading books, and kicking balls around. David has learned a lot about taking care of diabetes. He has been immersed in a diabetes world since his brother was diagnosed when David was one month old. When David was diagnosed with diabetes at age two, he was immediately put on his brother's extra pump and CGM. He is probably one of very few Type 1 diabetics who has never had a shot of insulin.
Providing opportunities that encourage, educate and create positive outcomes in the lives of children, young people and families whose life long journey includes battling Type 1 diabetes.
