The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to provide a support group with integrated psychoeducation for adult college students diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactive disorder at California State University, Long Beach. College students with ADHD experience a number of challenges, which place them at risk for academic and social malfunctions. Through a support group, students will have the opportunity to learn to manage their symptoms, balance college life and increase socialization for support. These factors will also set the platform for future success beyond college. An extensive literature review was conducted to explore the best possible methods to achieve these goals. The Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation, located in Long Beach, California, was selected for its mission, population served, and adequate funding requirements. The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement for this thesis project.
