EverSpark Interactive is proud to support deserving students with the launch of our first JJ Hennessey Honorary Epilepsy Scholarship. Named in honor of co-founder Jason Hennessey’s son JJ who lives with epilepsy, this $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to one high-achieving student with epilepsy.
Having seen firsthand the challenges that epilepsy brings, we are eager to bestow this first annual scholarship. We recognize that epilepsy in all of its forms presents serious but surmountable obstacles at any stage of life, but particularly for college or university students seeking to complete their studies and begin a career.

We understand that college classes and campuses can bring special challenges for students with epilepsy that other students do not face. We believe that all students should have an equal opportunity to succeed and we hope that the JJ Hennessey Scholarship will help a dedicated student overcome these challenges and earn their degree.
