MS Go for Gold scholarships

Once again, our Go for Gold Scholarships attracted a huge interest from members of the MS community. This year we awarded 55 scholarships across the fields of arts, education, travel, music, sport, employment, lifestyle & wellbeing. 

Our 2019 Go for Gold Scholarships were handed out in October at various locations throughout VIC, NSW, ACT and TAS.

We congratulate all of this year’s scholarship winners and invite you to read some of their stories

MS Go for Gold Scholarships are open to people living with multiple sclerosis, of all ages, who wish to achieve a dream. We believe that focusing on achieving a dream is a great way to build a stronger sense of wellness, focus on positive outcomes and a fantastic opportunity to inspire others at the same time!

Go for Gold dreams can be big or small, and everything in between. The scholarships can be used to achieve dreams from one of seven categories: The arts, education, travel, music, sport, employment and lifestyle & wellbeing.

Each scholarship is up to $3,000 in value, depending on the circumstances. To find out more information about the scholarships and how to apply, please go to MS Go for Gold Application Guidelines.

The number of scholarships has increased over the years, thanks to the generous efforts of the organisers, swimmers and supporters of the MS 24 Hour Mega Swim. The MS 24 Hour Mega Swim is a fun community event established by MS Ambassador and gold-winning Paralympian Carol Cooke in 2001. In 2011 the MS 24 Hour Mega Events expanded to include MS 24 Hour Mega Squash & Racquetball events as well.

Thank you to each and every person who has made our Go for Gold Scholars’ dreams come true by contributing to our MS 24 Hour Mega Events!
