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 2011 over $1 million was awarded to 639 scholars. Support for the scholarship program comes from foundations, chapter donors, our own employee giving program and other sources.
High school seniors who have MS or who have a parent with MS; or high school (or GED) graduates of any age who have MS or who have a parent with MS may apply.
Enrollment for the 2012 scholarship program is open between October 1, 2011 and January 13, 2012. Scholar winners will receive notice in May 2012.
