National MS Society Scholarship Program
MS shouldn’t stand in the way of an education. This is why the National MS Society's scholarship program exists — to help highly qualified students who have been diagnosed with MS or who have a parent with MS achieve their dreams of going to college.
The Society established its scholarship program in 2003 and the program continues to grow both in terms of support and scholarships awarded. In its first year of operation the program awarded 36 scholarships for a total of $68,000; in 2014 over $1 million was awarded to 713 scholars.
Support for the scholarship program comes from foundations, chapter donors, our own employee giving program and other sources. Click here
