Scholarship Program

MS shouldn’t stand in the way of an education. This is why the National MS Society's scholarship program exists.

Diagnosed 2006


The National MS Society’s scholarship program is designed to support families impacted by MS through minimizing the cost and isolation that exists for students living with MS (or with a parent living with MS) who are pursuing a college education. These scholarship awards can help with college costs such as books, supplies, and living expenses. The program also connects students to additional support resources and opportunities to engage with others in the MS community.

Recipients are selected based on academic merit, impact of MS on the family and financial need. Applicants are reviewed by a nationwide volunteer review committee to ensure the most meritorious scholars are selected. Applications are accepted online only.
