College Scholarships


My 17-year old daughter was diagnosed with Epilepsy when she was 2 years old. She had her right temporal lobe and hippocampus removed when she was 3 and has thankfully been seizure-free ever since. She is classified as 'Other Health Impaired' through Special Education in the public school system and has 21 accommodations in place to support her in the classroom. My daughter, who is finishing up her junior year in high school, will be going off to college next year and I'm curious if anyone knows of scholarships that are available to children who, while cured of Epilepsy, will experience life-long challenges as a result of the brain surgery. Thanks for your help!
