Who is eligible:
Scholarships are open to any college-age young person with PKU who is on diet treatment and is not in graduate school (the scholarship is now open only to undergraduates). Residents of any country are eligible to apply, but the application must be in English or translated into readable English.
Applicants must be accepted to an accredited college or technical school before the scholarship is awarded, but may apply for the scholarship before acceptance is confirmed.
Who will review scholarship applications:
A scholarship committee will review all applications. The committee consists of well-known PKU professionals and Guthrie family members.
Academic excellence and financial need of the applicant will be among factors considered, but financial need is NOT a prerequisite for being awarded a scholarship or merit award (it is only considered when the committee decides on the amount of the award).
We are looking for excellent students, no matter what their financial need.
Applications will be available after October 30th each year for that year’s applications.
Completed applications and reference letters must be submitted online by February 1st each year.
