BELLOWS FALLS — Erin Ross, a student at Bellows Falls Union High School in Westminster, was awarded the Skin Grip Diabetes Scholarship. Ross applied with a short video telling how she lives with diabetes. She was selected as one of her 25 recipients of this $1,000 scholarship.

Skin Grip’s mission is to help people with diabetes who struggle to keep blood glucose monitors inserted into their skin while living an active lifestyle. This scholarship aims to support students who live fearlessly despite their diagnosis and fight to make the world a better place.

As mentioned on the scholarship website, “Living with diabetes can make daily life more difficult due to the need to manage blood sugar levels, medical expenses, insulin, diabetes-related equipment, The high cost of consumables only makes things more difficult.

“Students living with diabetes have to deal with all of these things and more. Regardless of these challenges, people with diabetes overcome the situation and keep moving forward even when the going gets tough. They deserve to be recognized for their resilience and determination.”

To qualify for this scholarship, applicants must be a high school senior, undergraduate student in a two- or four-year degree program, or graduate student with diabetes.

Ross plans to attend St. Joseph’s University in Connecticut and major in social work and field hockey.
