Elaine Chapin Fund Scholarship Program
Named in honor of Elaine Chapin, this scholarship will provide funds to support the post-secondary education of students impacted by multiple sclerosis, either directly or as a family member.
The scholarship fund will accept applications from November 1st through April 30th each year, although the scholarship application is available to download at any time. The family of Elaine Chapin has determined that the scholarship fund will be awarding a minimum of (8) $1,000 scholarships for the fall 2014 semester to deserving students. Scholarship recipients will be notified prior to June 1st. Proof of registration will be required before the scholarship fund makes payment to the schools.
Recipients will be chosen on the basis of financial need, academic standing and the impact with which multiple sclerosis has affected their lives. Applicants must be citizens of the United States who plan to enroll or are enrolled in an undergraduate course of study at an accredited two or four year college, university, vocational or technical school located in the United States. Applicants must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester in course work leading to a degree, license or certificate.
There is no application fee to apply for this scholarship; however a gesture of a small donation with your application is certainly appreciated. Whether or not a donation is made will have no bearing on determining which students receive the scholarship awards.
For the Fall 2014 scholarship awards, applicants must send their completed application, an official transcript of their most recent academic grades, a personal essay detailing how MS has affected your life (500 word maximum), plus (2) letters of reference by April 30, 2014 to the address listed at the top of the scholarship application for consideration. The final selection of the scholarship recipients will be made by the family of Elaine Chapin.
Call for Applications: Early Career Investigator Travel Fellowship for Demyelination and Remyelination: From Mechanism to Therapy
Thursday, June 26, 2014 7:45 AM - 5:45 PM The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by Biogen Idec and the New York Academy of Sciences
Demyelinating diseases and disorders affect millions of people worldwide. While multiple sclerosis is the one of the most widely recognized myelin-associated disorders, changes to the brain’s white matter can be found in a number of genetic, inflammatory, infectious, cerebrovascular, and neurodegenerative conditions and injuries. New breakthroughs in basic science research on the white matter microenvironment and oligodendrocyte precursor cell development have provided novel potential sites of action for therapeutics. Translation of these discoveries into biomarkers to predict clinical outcomes, and into biologics that can modulate myelination utilizing these pathways, may transform the treatment of currently incurable conditions.
This one-day, translational conference will present recent findings in remyelination and repair from disease models and clinical trials, new techniques for imaging myelination changes in the brain and for screening molecular targets, and emerging therapeutics that promote remyelination.
