Andrew "Sparky" Seever Scholarship

The Andrew "Sparky" Seever Scholarship exists to assist Indiana residents diagnosed with muscular dystrophy or a neuromuscular disease in pursuit of their post high school education goals.

The scholarship is named after the late Andrew "Sparky" Seever, a former MDFF board member and Ball State alumni. Education was very important to Andrew and he aspired to make it accessible for everyone. MDFF mirrors those values so it was our honor to help his family create a scholarship in his name and help Andrew's legacy live on.

Scholarships of up to $2,000 will be awarded. Recipients will be selected by the MDFF Board of Directors based on financial need, academic achievement, leadership, community involvement and character.
