National Multiple Sclerosis Society Scholarship
applications open until January 31st
The National Multiple Sclerosis (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. The 2018 Scholarship Program is now open and closes after January 31.
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 and the application portal will be open through January 31.
It is anticipated that 300 to 400 scholarships will be granted (dependent on funding available). The application review and selection process is competitive and not all applicants will be granted an award.
