The program will award up to 10 Scholarships with awards ranging from approximately $300.00-$1,000.00 Enclosed is a complete application packet including three Scholarship Announcements, one Application Form, and two Reference Forms.
Alternate formats (large print, or computer disk) of scholarship materials are available upon request. Applications in alternate formats will also be accepted. Please contact Disability Services for further information. If needed, assistance to complete the application process or forms is available at Disability Services. You need to submit only one application to be considered for any one or all three of these scholarships.
