Our mission is to connect you with the resources, support, and community you need to manage your journey confidently. Today, we’re excited to share an opportunity that aligns perfectly with our goals and can significantly impact our community members’ lives.

The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) has launched its inaugural College Scholarship Program, designed to support students living with neuromuscular disease in their pursuit of higher education. This initiative is a testament to MDA’s commitment to empowering young adults affected by neuromuscular conditions, providing financial assistance and a supportive community network to help them achieve their academic and career aspirations.

About the MDA College Scholarship Program

  • What? The MDA is offering 10 merit-based college scholarships, valued at up to $5,000 each, for students with neuromuscular disease.
  • Who? Eligible students planning to attend or currently enrolled in an accredited college or university can apply. The program seeks applicants who demonstrate community involvement, personal growth, and leadership potential.
  • How? Interested students can apply by visiting MDA.org/Scholarship until March 31, 2024. Winners will be notified in June and officially announced in mid-August.

This scholarship is more than financial support; it’s an invitation to join an online community of peers, fostering an environment where students can share experiences, advice, and resources. It reflects MDA’s nearly 75-year commitment to advancing care, treatments, and advocacy for the neuromuscular disease community, emphasizing the importance of education, financial support, and leadership development for young adults.
