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.
Support for the scholarship program comes from foundations, chapter donors, our own employee giving program and other sources. Click here to learn how you can help us support future scholars.
CENTRAL CHAPTER OF THE NATIONAL MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS SOCIETY
ANNOUNCES 2012 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
Along with the emotional toll of Multiple Sclerosis, the financial toll can be profoundly devastating, which can make funding a college education even more difficult. Each year, the National MS Society awards scholarships to high school seniors who live with MS or have a parent who does. It is also open to any person living with MS who has not yet had the privilege of attending a secondary school. The National MS Society Scholarship Program aids students in pursuing a higher education.
The Central Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is proud to announce the scholarship recipients of 2012:
Abigale Nowka, from Central Dauphin High School, will be attending Indiana University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2012. Raegan Stence, from Trinity High School, will begin her college career at Auburn University. Britney Zumerling, a Columbia Montour AVTS graduate, will begin her secondary schooling at Penn State – Hazelton. A graduate from Dallstown Area High School, Elise McCarter, will be attending Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in the fall of 2012. Seleana Karim, a graduate of Milton Hershey School, will be attending Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania in the fall. Cameron Swengel graduated from Central York High School in June 2011 and is now a student at Philadelphia University.
The Central PA Chapter wishes our scholarship award winners success and best wishes in their future endeavors.
