A Sweet Life
www.asweetlife.org

ASweetLife is a lifestyle magazine owned and written by diabetics who are also accomplished and recog­nized names — journalists, doctors, scientists, and advocates who have published books and essays in the New York Times, the Financial Times, the Washington Post, Popular Science, and more. We have begun to create a new kind of diabetes website that brings the highest quality of content together with a genuine community of support. ASweetLife can make a strong and positive impact on diabetics nationwide. We know we can help people take care of themselves, live well, and eat right. And we know that we can provide a level of content that is unparalleled. And since we are ourselves diabetics, its all coming right from the heart.

Diabetes Scholar Foundation
http://www.diabetesscholars.org/

The Diabetes Scholars Foundation will be awarding college scholarships to students with Type 1 diabetes. At least fifteen $5,000 college scholarships will be awarded to incoming freshmen. The college scholarship is not based on need but rather looks at several criteria including grades, community involvement, school activities, leadership, advocacy, and essay and letters of recommen­dation from both an endocrinologist and a high school counselor/teacher. The application will be available online on our website at www.diabetesscholars.org beginning in January. In addition we will be awarding one $1,000 college scholarship to a student with Type 1 diabetes residing in the State of Michigan with plans on attending the University of Michigan (University of Michigan D.R.E.A.M. Scholarship). And we will be offering one $1,000 college scholarship to a student residing in the State of Ohio (Josh Smith Memorial Scholarship). Those students applying to our $5,000 college scholarship program will automatically be consid­ered for the other two if they qualify.

In the past two years we have awarded almost $200,000 ($5,000 each) in college scholarships to students with Type 1 diabe­tes. Some of the schools our recipients are attending include Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Duke, Northwestern and the University of Chicago. They are an amazing group of students with very impressive accomplishments.
