Scholarships and Financial Aid for Students with Disabilities
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 11% of undergraduate students have a disability. Considering that around 20.2 million students are enrolled at U.S. colleges, an estimated 2 million of them are likely living with some type of a disability. This may include a visual impairment, a specific learning disability, an orthopedic impairment, hard of hearing/deafness, or a speech disability, among others. Many of these students receive federal financial aid while some work part-time and/or receive financial assistance from their families to help pay for college. There are a large number of scholarships for students with disabilities from outside sources. To assist in this search, Affordable Colleges created a list of the current disability scholarships being offered from various foundations and organizations. Select scholarships to visit the list.
Disability Services Overview
The disability services office is always looking for ways to share information to our faculty, staff, and community about our process to include general information. We are happy to conduct a 5 to 7 minute presentation to your students or your staff/faculty at department meetings. If you are interested, please submit your request to Maria Botello at email@example.com. A presentation on disability services was offered as one of the sessions during the All College Meeting. If you missed that presentation, you may view the power-point here.
