Marianjoy Scholarship Program
Undergoing physical rehabilitation after an illness or accident takes courage. Living with a disability takes perseverance. Pursuing a dream, no matter what obstacles you may encounter, requires determination. At Marianjoy, we want to help. If your goal is to receive a college degree, then consider applying for a Marianjoy Scholarship. You could receive a scholarship to further your education, and help you uncover opportunities, new possibilities, and growth toward achieving your dreams.
The Marianjoy Scholarship Program was established in 1994, and to date nearly $650,000 in scholarship money has been awarded.
In keeping with Marianjoy’s commitment to assist people with disabilities, the Marianjoy Scholarship is intended for those individuals with permanent physical disabilities like those served through Marianjoy programs, which are listed below. These programs include (but are not limited to):
It is not necessary to have been a Marianjoy patient to apply for this scholarship.
The Marianjoy Scholarship Program reserves the right to review its conditions and procedures and to make changes at any time, including its termination. Previously approved scholarships will not be affected by subsequent changes.
Each year, scholarships for post-high school education are awarded to students with disabilities to enable them to pursue educational programs at accredited four-year colleges and universities, two-year colleges, or vocational-technical schools in the United States.
Scholarship monies may be used for tuition, fees, books, and room and board. The amount awarded will not exceed the cost of tuition, books, fees, and room and board.
Recipients are selected without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, disability, or national origin.
Recipients must enroll in school no later than the fall session following the announcement of the awards.
Awards will be paid in two equal installments made payable to the post-secondary school.
