We are very pleased to offer nine scholarships to young adults with hydrocephalus. On the 18th year of the program we are honored to announce the amount of each scholarship has been increased to $1,000.
These scholarships are funded by the Hydrocephalus Association and by two Gerard Swartz Fudge Memorial Scholarship Funds, two Morris L. and Rebecca Ziskind Memorial Scholarship Funds, two Anthony Abbene Scholarship Funds, the Justin Scot Alston Memorial Scholarship Fund, the Mario J. Tocco Hydrocephalus Foundation Scholarship Fund, and the Giavana Marie Melomo Memorial Scholarship Fund.
We are extremely grateful to all of the families who have made these scholarships possible for our young adults to pursue their educational goals and careers. Please visit our scholarships page to learn more about the generous funders of this program. To date, HA has awarded eighty scholarships to eighty deserving future leaders of our community. We invite you to read about our past recipients and their dreams, accomplishments, and their drive to further their education on our website.
