The Center for Reintegration, a nonprofit organization working to improve the lives of persons with mental illness, is accepting applications for the 2005-2006 Lilly Moving Lives Forward Reintegration Scholarship.

Sponsored by pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly and Company, the program is designed to help persons with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or related schizophrenia-spectrum disorders acquire the educational and vocational skills necessary to move their lives forward and reintegrate into society. For the 2004-05 school year, fifty students were awarded scholarships.

An independent judging panel made up of nine psychiatric care professionals will choose the winners. Levels of study range from high school equivalency programs to graduate degrees, with the areas of endeavor including engineering, law, psychiatry, graphic design, social work, architecture, education, and computer sciences. Current scholarship recipients attend such schools as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Culinary Institute of America, Purdue University, Cal Tech, the University of Tennessee, and others.

Complete program guidelines and applications are available at the Center for Reintegration website.
