In 2019 the Council Bluffs Cosmopolitan Club established their scholarship program for graduating high school seniors with Type 1 diabetes.  Working through the SouthWest Iowa Education Foundation and with the support of the Council Bluffs community, we were able to offer two $1,000 scholarships. High School graduating Seniors with Type 1 Diabetes can apply for possible future scholarships by the normal procedure with the SouthWest Iowa Education Foundation.
