Nonprofit Project Sleep has announced 11 recipients of the 2017 Jack & Julie Narcolepsy Scholarship, a national scholarship program supporting students with narcolepsy while also raising narcolepsy awareness in high school and college settings.

“When the Graham family and I founded the program 4 years ago, we planned to give 1 scholarship each year,” says founder Julie Flygare on Project Sleep’s website. “The fact that so many caring individuals, families, and corporations including Jazz [Pharmaceuticals, which made a $5,000 charitable contribution] have joined us to make a positive impact on so many more students with narcolepsy—it’s a dream come true and an honor to share the 2017 recipients with you today.”

  • Cassandra Stewart, Nitro, WV
  • Zachary Marcha, Clyde, OH
  • Christian Goduti, Huntersville, NC
