Scholarships for Students with a Physical Disability

Many college students today struggle with the burden of high tuition and education costs. Students with physical disabilities face these same hurdles, along with the added challenges presented by their disability. The good news is, there are plenty of scholarships available designed to make college more accessible and affordable to students with physical disabilities. Across the country, there are foundations and associations that provide scholarships that address just about every form of physical disability a student may face. Some universities and colleges, including those especially for disabled students, also offer scholarships. All of these scholarships have different application requirements, but most ask for a transcript and entry essay. Don’t let your disability get in the way of college. Instead, find a scholarship below that will enable you to reach your goals.
