FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE DANA WALTERS
SCHOLARSHIP FOUNDATION 

 

You don't have to have Cystic Fibrosis in order to qualify for the scholarship. You need only be an immediate member of a family with a person with CF. That includes Moms and Dads too!!

Once you qualify for the scholarship it is yours until you complete your four year degree--even if it takes more than four years.

Income is not an issue. The Dana Walters Scholarship Foundation was established to help persons become self sufficient and build self esteem.

It does not matter what college you plan to attend. If you are awarded the scholarship you can go anywhere you choose.

The scholarship foundation will make your payment directly to the college of your choice of you can submit bills that you have already paid for reimbursement.

We have an internship program to help not only scholarship recipients but anyone with Cystic Fibrosis find a job that is suited to his or her talent. This does not mean that you have to have completed a degree in order to be able to participate.

There are health clubs that will work with the Cystic Fibrosis community to make sure that you stay as healthy as you can while you are in school or working.

The Dana Walters Scholarship Foundation has speakers that will be glad to address your workplace or community club free of charge. We want to spread the message so that everyone will participate.
