PTSD June 2017 Awareness Month
After a trauma or life-threatening event, it is common to have reactions such as upsetting memories of the event, increased jumpiness, or trouble sleeping. If these reactions do not go away or if they get worse, you may have Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). If you are a student diagnosed with PTSD, stop by our office for academic services, referrals, and support. See flyer.
Scholarships and Financial Aid for Students with Disabilities
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 11% of undergraduate students have a disability. Considering that around 20.2 million students are enrolled at U.S. colleges, an estimated 2 million of them are likely living with some type of a disability. This may include a visual impairment, a specific learning disability, an orthopedic impairment, hard of hearing/deafness, or a speech disability, among others. Many of these students receive federal financial aid while some work part-time and/or receive financial assistance from their families to help pay for college. There are a large number of scholarships for students with disabilities from outside sources. To assist in this search, Affordable Colleges created a list of the current disability scholarships being offered from various foundations and organizations. Select scholarships to visit the list.
