1. Scholarship Opportunities for Students with Disabilities

    March 29, 2018

    I believe all students should have the opportunity to thrive and excel in higher education.

    This statement, something I’ve expressed time and time again, is crucial in making our world a more diverse, equitable and inclusive place.

    In support of this belief, I am pleased to share this information with our community, as The Springboard Foundation is offering 18 scholarships to college students with disabilities. Applications are available now through June 15.

    The Springboard Foundation provides scholarships to full-time college/university students who have documented disabilities of any type. The Foundation is committed to providing these scholarships which contribute to the increase in employment opportunities for college/university students with disabilities.

    Since 2016, The Springboard Foundation has awarded 22 general and STEM-focused scholarships to college students with disabilities from four-year accredited colleges and universities around the country. This year, they have increased the number of scholarship offerings to 18.
