The 2015 Neyhart Scholarship application period is still open. Students who wish to apply for the 2015 scholarship must submit their application by May 1, 2015.
Clara and Greg Neyhart created the Neyhart Scholarship in 2010 to support patients with kidney disease or children of patients with kidney disease. The Neyhart Scholarship has awarded three awards: in 2012, to Angelica Lieth, in 2013, to Kaysha Lampkins, and in 2014 to Sarah McBride.
Clara Neyhart encourages individuals with kidney disease to apply for the scholarship, and to continue their education.
"We are pleased to be able to continue to help people affected by kidney disease to further their education. It is so important to continue to pursue life goals when facing a chronic illness. We encourage individuals who have chronic kidney disease not to allow the disease to discourage them, but to press on toward their goals, one step at a time," she said.
