Unfortunately, students with disabilities have been unable to find a complete & updated list of scholarships they’re eligible for.

So, we decided to change that.

After tens of hours of research, we've managed to put together a list for the 2014-2015 academic school year. We will continue to update this list with new scholarships, deadlines, as well as taking down any that are no longer being offered.

Note: if a deadline is labeled as "outdated", it means that at the last time these organizations' pages were checked, they hadn't provided information for next year's scholarship yet.
