We are now accepting applications for our 2015 Scholarship Program. The scholarship program was established in 1994 to provide financial assistance to capable and promising teens and young adults who have been dealing with the ongoing challenges and complexities of hydrocephalus. The Teens Take Charge (TTC) Program was established in 2010 and through the program we are able to provide five additional scholarships. This year, with TTC, we are proud to offer a total of fourteen scholarships in the amount of $1000 each. Since the program was established, HA has awarded 121 scholarships to 121 deserving future leaders of our community.
“Hydrocephalus does not define me, or my life. I have become a better, more mature person who appreciates everything in life so much more because of my experiences.” – Olivia Maccoux, 2014 Recipient
These 14 scholarships are funded by the Hydrocephalus Association as well as 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 TTC scholarships are proudly sponsored by the Medtronic Foundation and Clare Rose Foundation.
“I am living proof that you can succeed in school and life with hydrocephalus and I want to share that with the world.” – Shannon McCloskey, 2014 Recipient
We are very grateful to all of the families who have made these scholarships possible for our teens and young adults to pursue their educational goals and careers. Please visit our scholarship page to learn more about the generous funders of this program.
“I hope to be a person who will ignite change and forward thinking, and to be an advocate for the hydrocephalus community at large.” – Nicole Wiegers, 2014 Recipient
