It is important to create a registration on our site www.disABLEDperson.com and become a community member so click on "Sign up now" to do so.

disABLEDperson, Inc. announce our Spring 2024 National Scholarship Competition for College Students with Disabilities!

This competition begins on January 2, 2024, and ends on March 15, 2024

The award is $2000.00 (two thousand dollars)!

To participate, you need to register for the competition. To do so click on “Register for this Scholarship” link. Fill out the form completely and paste your essay into the form.

In order to qualify, you must be enrolled in a 2 or 4 years accredited college or university in the United States of America and be a matriculated student and attending school full-time and U.S. citizen. We will accept students who are not attending school full-time as long as the part-time attendance is due to their disability and not their financial situation (minimum of 6 credits for undergraduate, 6 credits for graduate). Unfortunately, we are not able to award scholarships to high school students.

Upon winning, the student will prove disability and matriculation through their Disability Student Services department. We define disability as described under the ADA: “A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities of such an individual. A record of such an impairment or being regarded as having such an impairment".

Be sure to submit your entry before the March 15, 2024 deadline. The winner will be announced on our website on April 1, 2024. All decisions made by disABLEDperson, Inc. are final.Background The U.S. Census Bureau has proposed changes to how its annual American Community Survey produces estimates of how many people with disabilities are living in the country.

Note: any essay exceeding 1000 words will be disqualified.
