ALL APPLICATIONS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY FEBRUARY 22, 2019

The Brandon Gruber Scholarship was established with the goal of supporting self-advocates as they pursue their passion for visual and performing arts.

Throughout Brandon’s life, he participated in school activities including drama and the arts. He continues to showcase his artistic talents through art gallery displays, modeling, acting and fashion design.

Through his foundation, 321 Life, Brandon inspires the community and gives individuals from all backgrounds the opportunity to have new and inclusive experiences.

Brandon’s motto is “Work hard. Choose kindness every day. Be yourself!” Brandon demonstrates this motto in his everyday activities through his interactions with those around him and through his leadership in his community.

This scholarship will be given at the Annual NDSS Down Syndrome Adult Summit to two deserving self-advocates who are passionate about the arts and who exemplify Brandon’s mission in their daily lives.

“Big changes begin with one idea put into action.”
