Scholarship Program

Since its inception in 1990, the United Needs & Abilities' scholarship program has been assisting Eastern Shore residents with the cost of higher education. This program offers people with epilepsy a chance to enhance their quality of life through educational achievement. Through this program, financial assistance will be available to deserving candidates for the purpose of pursuing their educational goals past the secondary school level.

If you are interested in obtaining a scholarship, please look over the criteria for award of funds below, and then contact the main office by phone (410-543-0665) or contact us here to request an application.
