For people with epilepsy seeking funding for educational purposes there are many options.
Please select a scholarship from below for more details and information.
2013 Camp Scholarship program
Applications for the 2013 Summer Camp Scholarship program are by invitation only as described below.
Our funding is scarce.
Given that we have many Chris’ Campers who have been awarded scholarships over the past 2 years we will only accept applications for 2013 from these previous winners and other eligible individuals who are served by our Agency. Thereby continuing the tradition for Chris’ Campers!
In addition, we also provide the FAMILY EMPOWERMENT FUND, which is intended to provide temporary assistance to people with a developmental disability and their families who are experiencing financial difficulty.
