The Adrienne Paige Gilbert scholarship is for students with Osteogenesis Imperfecta enrolled at Ball State University. A scholarship will be awarded each year to a student with Osteogenesis Imperfecta at Ball State. In the event that no student with Osteogenesis Imperfecta is currently enrolled, the scholarship will be awarded to another student with a disability.

Current students wishing to be considered for this scholarship must submit an application to DS by April 15. The student selected to receive this scholarship will be notified by May 15. While this is not a renewable scholarship, previous recipients are welcome to apply again for consideration.

The selection committee will consider four factors in determining scholarship recipients each year.

  • Appropriate documentation of Osteogenesis Imperfecta on file with DS
  • The student's academic record
  • The student's involvement in campus and community organizations and activities (special consideration will be given to students who are active in the Alliance for Disability Awareness)
  • Financial need (students should have submitted a FAFSA by March 10)

To be considered for this award, students must send either a letter or an email expressing an interest in being considered for a Gilbert Scholarship. This should include a description of why the student would be a good candidate for this scholarship. Please describe your campus activities, community involvements, and leadership experience.
