MS shouldn’t stand in the way of 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 2008 a total of $1.14 million was awarded to 518 scholars.
Support for the opportunity program comes from foundations, chapter donors, our own employee giving the program and other sources. Click here to learn how you can help us support future scholars.
