There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier. A Multiple Sclerosis (MS) diagnosis often means extra medical costs for treatment and equipment. If you are a student who has MS—or have a parent who has been diagnosed with MS—check out this scholarship from the PreJax Foundation, an organization who is working to alleviate the financial burdens of families who are already faced with so much uncertainty. Scholarship: Scholarship for Kids of MS Awarding Organization: The PreJax Foundation Amount: $1,000 Eligible Students: High school graduates or current undergraduates pursuing a degree.
