Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects Award Program for JDRF

Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects Award Program for JDRF

JDRF and Boston Pizza Foundation are excited to announce the Boston Pizza Foundation Future Prospects Award Program for JDRF to help those living with type one diabetes (T1D) get a financial head start on their post-secondary studies. The Award Program was established to shine a light on the importance of supporting those T1D role models, leaders and mentors who take the time to empower others while managing their own disease, and create stronger and healthier communities as a result.

By covering a portion of a student’s tuition and/or required materials, JDRF and the Boston Pizza Foundation hope to ease the financial burden associated with pursuing a higher education.

JDRF and Boston Pizza are excited to provide 20 awards of $5,000 each to students living with T1D!
