Aisha Chaudhary Educational Scholarship Program



Educational Scholarship for US Students Diagnosed with SCID

SCID, Angels for Life Foundation is pleased to announce the Aisha Chaudhary SCID Scholarship fund for undergraduate students, graduate students or those attending a trade school in the US who are diagnosed with Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID).  The scholarships are available to freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors.  This fund was created from generous donations made to SCID Angels for Life Foundation in memory of eighteen-year-old Aisha Chaudhary, who died from complications of SCID in 2015.  Aisha touched the hearts and minds of so many people during her eighteen years here on earth but her legacy lives on.  You see, Aisha became a published author right before her death.  During the last few months of her life, she spent most of her time lying in bed, too weak to get up.  It’s during this time that she decided to write down her thoughts and capture her feelings on paper through doodles.  “In the book, My Little Epiphanies she takes a hard look at her own feelings and what it was that gave her a sense of hope and control.” To learn more about Aisha and her family’s story, watch the film The Sky Is Pink on Netflix, I promise you won’t be disappointed, or view her motivational talks at two international platforms including TEDx and INKtalks below:

Scholarship checks are made out directly to the student receiving the award, not to the college or school they’re attending.  Any undergraduate student with SCID is eligible to apply, however, proof of college enrollment or trade school is required.  You may also be asked to provide proof of your SCID diagnosis.  The application process is open during a limited time per year; February 1st through June 30th and all applicants will be required to provide proof of enrollment for the following fall semester.  Scholarships are announced via email and awarded within 4 weeks of the application deadline of June 30th.
