NATIONAL MS SOCIETY MD CHAPTER ACCOUNCES 2012 SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS
The National MS Society, Maryland Chapter Scholarship helps students affected by multiple sclerosis pursue a college or technical school education. This year the Chapter made 5 awards totaling $9,000.
We asked our scholarship winners to tell us what their scholarship award means to them:
Apurva Shah: “My mother has taught me the value and true importance and hard work as she continues to battle the symptoms of multiple sclerosis every day. With this scholarship, I will be able to further my education at the University of Maryland; Baltimore County.”
Charles Wilson, Jr.: “These funds will be helpful in my pursuit of a degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. With this education, I plan to learn more about this world and how it works.”
Esther Kardel: “For me, the scholarship from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society may mean the difference between attending or not attending college.”
Jocelyn Faro: “By awarding me the National MS Society Scholarship, you have lightened by family’s financial burden, which allows be to focus on the most important aspect of school: learning.”
Jacob Kelly: “The NMSS scholarship has given me the ability to pay for a portion of my tuition at college.”
The National MS Society believes MS shouldn’t stand in the way of education. This scholarship program helps highly qualified students who have been diagnosed with MS or have a parent with MS.
Support for the scholarship program comes from foundations, chapter donors, our own employee giving program and other sources. If you are interested in giving to the Scholarship
