This year, Texas was proud to offer 29 new scholarships to first-year college students, as well as 50 renewing scholarships to returning college scholars. Through the scholarship program, new and renewing scholars have the opportunity to connect with other students impacted by MS, and to get connected through Society programs and volunteer opportunities.
The renewing scholarship awarded to Stephanie Wythe from The Woodlands,TX has allowed her to continue her work toward a degree in biomedical sciences at Texas A&M. “I have always dreamed of becoming a doctor ever since I was a little kid,” she said. “My dad’s diagnoses with MS in 2009 confirmed my passion for service, strengthened my interest in medicine, and has made me extra motived to pursue this dream and succeed! I absolutely adore working with children, and hope to become a pediatric surgeon after medical school.” In the meantime, she is making the most of her college career, and giving back to the Society when she can. She has volunteered at several Walk MS events, plans to volunteer at Bike MS, and looks forward to participating in one of the Society camps for children affected by MS.
Congratulations to all of our new scholarship recipients!
