Higher Education Scholarships

The MAGIC Foundation annually awards 2 separate scholarships to High School Graduates (who have a confirmed diagnosis of a growth disorder) in the amount of $500 each for advanced level education.

Our goal is to increase the funding for this valuable scholarship program. We would like to be financially capable of honoring more (and hopefully larger) requests by affected young adults. Hopefully, one day, they will all be able to fulfill their dreams of a higher education. If you are interested in supporting this program please contact our office or visit the Special Donations section on this website. Thank you!

The awards are to be applied toward educational costs at an accredited College, University, and/or approved Vocational Trade School. funds are to be used at the discretion of the recipients (i.e. tuition, room and board, books, misc., etc.). Winners of the scholarship will have their names, schools they will be attending and a brief personal history published in The MAGIC Touch newsletter. The scholarships are not renewable. However, applicants my apply again and if funds are available, will be considered for another scholarship. No person involved in The MAGIC Foundation's Scholarship process shall make judgement based upon race, religion, or sex of the applicant.

MAGIC has provided over 30 scholarships since the inception of the College Scholarship Program. It is our hope that through the generosity of others MAGIC can increase that number to more than double in the next few years.

The Independent Charities Seal of Excellence is awarded to Charities of America that have, upon rigorous independent review, been able to certify, on an annual basis that they meet the highest standards of public accountability, program effectiveness, and cost effectiveness.

These standards include those required by the US Government for inclusion in the Combined Federal Campaign, probably the most exclusive fund drive in the world.

Of the 1,000,000 charities operating in the United States today, it is estimated that fewer than 50,000, or 5 percent, meet or exceed these standards, and, of those, fewer than 2,000 have been awarded this Seal. MAGIC's CFC #10388.
