MS shouldn't stand in the way of an education. The National MS Society's scholarship program exists to help highly qualified students who have been diagnosed with MS or have a parent with MS achieve their dreams of going to college.
Please contact Melissa Slizewski at 443-641-1205 or email@example.com for more information on how you can make the dream a reality.
The Maryland Chapter of the National MS Society has announced this year’s recipient of its annual Scholarship Program. The program helps students affected by multiple sclerosis pursue a college or technical school education. It is open to high school seniors who live with MS or have a parent who does; or anybody living with MS who has not yet been to a post-secondary school.
Congratulations to the 2013 Scholarship Recipient!
Paul Burke was awarded a $1,500 scholarship by the Maryland Chapter.
“I thank you very much for the exceptionally generous college scholarship that you awarded me,” Burke says. “I am incredibly honored and appreciative of this gift. As some of you may know, having a family member with multiple can be challenging. My mom really works hard to not let her disabilities get in the way of our family. It makes me feel good that through your kindness and generosity, I am able to help with my tuition by earning a scholarship. I hope that I will earn your continued respect as I continue to excel in school.”
Paul Burke is on his way to the University of Virginia to study aerospace engineering.
