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 2013 SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS
Along with the emotional toll, the financial toll that Multiple Sclerosis can have on a family can be devastating, which can make funding a college education even more difficult. Each year, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society awards scholarships to high school seniors who are personally, or have a parent affected by MS. It is also open to any person living with MS who has not yet had the privilege of attending a secondary school. Our 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 2013.
