In 2011, a small group of Californians discovered that there is no national Cerebral Palsy scholarship program or one that is open to all California students with Cerebral Palsy. They felt passionately that higher education should be an acheiveable option for these deserving students and started Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation.
The mission of the Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation is to encourage and assist students with Cerebral Palsy to pursue college, university or vocational school education.
The scholarships are a celebration of achievement, not only academic but also personal. A life lived with dignity and passion is a triumph. The first scholarships were awarded June 2012.
Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation is designated as a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization by the IRS.
