Paying for college
The costs of college can bite into a family’s resources, especially when they are already stretched by the costs of multiple sclerosis. The National MS Society’s scholarship program helps highly qualified students diagnosed with MS or who have a parent with MS reach their goal of going to college. The program is open to high school seniors and first-time college attendees; applications are available beginning Oct. 1 each year, with an application deadline in mid-January. Visit nationalMSsociety.org/scholarships.
