The mission of the Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation is to encourage and assist students with Cerebral Palsy to pursue college, university or vocational school education. We believe that education should be an achievable option, not an out of reach luxury, for these students.
We are happy to announce eleven scholarships in the amount of $1000 to $2500 for the Fall 2014/Spring 2015 award year have been awarded. Since the foundation's inauguration in 2013, 25 scholarships totalling $39,500 have been awarded. Many thanks to both our generous donors and the inspirational applicants!
The application for the Fall 2015/Spring 2016 scholarship program is now available. This program is open to California residents, age 17 and older, who have a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy.
Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, achievement, which includes academic and life accomplishments, and special circumstances. The awards are a celebration of these students' determination and dignity. We look forward to honoring them!
