Lime Connect believes strongly in the potential of high school students who have all types of disabilities and is committed to supporting their future. In 2019, we were pleased to launch our inaugural Pathways Scholarship designed for current high school seniors who are pursuing a degree at a four-year university or college in either the U.S. or Canada. We have impacted 45 promising students through this award and we have increased our giving each year.

Multiple students are selected for this award each year and these awards are merit-based, however, financial needs will be taken into consideration.


Students Selected

$1,000 USD

The Pathways Scholarship is funded through proceeds from our annual Lime Connect Century Ride. Find out how you can participate to support next year’s scholarship recipients. Click here to learn more.  You can also learn more about our past winners KaitlynMeghan D.Megan G. and Marcus.

Eligibility Requirements:

2024 Scholarship Applicants must match the following criteria:

  • Intending to be enrolled full-time in that 4-year university or college in Fall 2024

* An individual with a disability is defined as someone who has or considers themselves to have, a long-term, or recurring, issue that impacts one or more major activities that others may consider to be a daily function); this definition also includes the perception among others that a disability exists. We know that 90% of disabilities on campus are invisible, and candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to apply.
