National Multiple Sclerosis Society Scholarship Program

National Multiple Sclerosis Society Scholarship Program
National Multiple Sclerosis Society Scholarship Program helps students who have been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis or who are children whose parents have MS achieve their post-secondary school goals of attending college.

Eligible students must be high school seniors or graduates who plan to attend a two-year or four-year college, university or other accredited school. Students may attend full-time or part-time (minimum of 6 credit hours). Applicants must be pursuing a degree, license or certificate.

Students may choose any school they want, as long as it meets national, state, or professional accreditation standards. Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of financial need, academic performance, leadership and commitment to school and their communities. An essay will be required in which the student describes how their life has been affected by MS.

The scholarship is sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, a non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the immune system that attacks the central nervous system and causes paralysis of the limbs and loss of vision. Symptoms can vary from mild to severe. It's cause is unknown.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JANUARY of each year, and the award amount is usually $1,000 - $3,000.
