As a community of compassionate people dedicated to a world without eating disorders, we understand the impact of empowering those who are breaking through to the other side of this illness. Each year, the Looking Glass Foundation awards $15,000 in scholarships and bursaries to BC students who have received treatment, or are currently receiving treatment, for an eating disorder. Our scholarships underscore three distinct strengths in overcoming an eating disorder: Persevere; Pursue Your Passion; and Rise Above.
This year, the Looking Glass Foundation Scholarship Committee received so many compelling scholarship applications, all from inspiring young people with dreams for furthering their education. It truly was a difficult choice. (It was so difficult that, with the help of a generous anonymous donor, we even added an additional scholarship!)
