Husky Promise in Washington State
Michael - I don't know of such a scholarship, but it's not a bad idea. Often families with a PwP member have reduced income, making it difficult to make ends meet, let alone bear the cost of college tuition.
I lost my job due to PD. Luckily, I live in Washington State where my daughter's tuition to attend the University of Washington was covered entirely by a program called the "Husky Promise" for qualified kids from low income families who are state residents. She graduated in 2011, and is joining me as an Assistant State Coordinator for the PAN Forum in Washington, DC next month. We couldn't have done it without help - she also worked the entire time to cover housing and other expenses - It would be great if such programs were available everywhere!
Good luck to you and your talented daughter!
“Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world’s estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences.” — Susan B. Anthony
