Educational Scholarships

TEENS-COLLEGE2CHASA is proud to offer college and vocational school scholarships for students with a diagnosis of hemiplegia or hemiparesis due to any cause, or a diagnosis of pediatric stroke. CHASA has awarded scholarships annually since 2000. Read more about the Megan Chesney Scholarship Fund.

Deadline for application is August 31st. Scholarship recipients will be notified by email and phone by November 15th and checks will be mailed directly to schools in late November. Applicants who are not chosen to receive a scholarship will not be notified due to problems with spam filters. Please read the scholarship guidelines listed in the application to determine your eligibility. The onset of your diagnosis must have been before age 18 years.

Helpful Hint: When applying for the scholarship, the application and essay should be completed by the student – not the parent. We want to hear from your student!

CHASA 2016 Scholarship Application

We have asked that they correct the information, but have received no response. Official information regarding CHASA scholarships resides only on the chasa.org website.
