Melanie Grace Memorial Scholarship

Melanie Grace Burnell was a woman of immense talent and heart who shone with a special light and special love—a love of people, animals, and our world. Melanie was unique, effervescent, spirited, and taken from us far too soon.

In her memory, an educational scholarship has been established to help women with epilepsy achieve their educational goals, to help them shine, and to help them make a difference—just as Melanie did!
