Donations are now being collected for Huntington’s Hope scholarships. These scholarships will help children of parents with Huntington’s disease come one step closer to achieving their dreams.
When $25,000 in donations has been reached, scholarships can be disbursed. There will be four Huntington’s Hope scholarships available, each for $1,000, which may be renewed for up to four years, provided the applicant meets established criteria. Recipients will be selected based on eligibility, completed application and a personal interview. Residents of Minnesota will receive first priority, followed by residents of the Upper Midwest (Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota and South Dakota) and then the rest of the United States.
Huntington’s Hope scholarships will be awarded to applicants who are:
- · A current resident of any state in the United States,
- · Planning to enroll for a minimum of half time undergraduate study in an accredited two or four-year post-secondary educational program, and
- · The child of a parent currently living with Huntington’s disease or a parent who died prior to the scholarship applicant turning 18 years of age.
To help make a difference in someone’s life, please DONATE TO HUNTINGTON’S HOPE SCHOLARSHIP FUND NOW. Donations of $10 and $20 add up quickly and will provide the financial foundation for Huntington’s Hope. We need to reach that $25,000 level so we can begin disbursing scholarships! Thank you!
