Scholarships for Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities information page

"There are many circumstances that make financing college harder for disabled students. Disabilities may prevent students from attending school full-time, which makes it harder to qualify for financial aid and scholarships reserved for those with full-time status. Disabilities may also require access to accommodations or support that are not provided by schools; require medical care that is not covered by school-sponsored insurance plans; and prevent students from working part-time jobs to offset tuition costs.

Fortunately, there are many financing options and benefits available to disabled students. This is our guide to the opportunities out there. We’ll start with those that are available to students living with any kind of disability and then break down awards designated for students living with particular types of disabilities."
