College Grants For Students With Disabilities

Henry Said:

how many student loans can I apply for in my 1st yr of college?

We Answered:

you can apply for as many loans as you can ...

just make sure that you're able to pay back the huge interest that the banks charge ...

Angela Said:

Does anyone know of any CSU programs for students with disabilities?

We Answered:

Talk to the school and they can help you with every thing. You can apply for grants and because you are disabled you have a very good chance of getting a grant. good luck.

Nicholas Said:

Going to college in New York City - At 35 years old - financial aid?

We Answered:

careers.scienceontheweb.net - it has detailed info how to apply for financial aid and scholarships to get more cash.

Gertrude Said:

Will I be able to live off of college grants and loans?

We Answered:

Yes, but I suggest getting a job so you just don't run out of money. 6000 only lasts for so long, especially when you are paying rent, car payments, groceries, etc. With full time enrollment, you will get the amount of money rewarded. It's only if you drop classes or do half-time that they adjusted your financial aid.

Gilbert Said:

Disability Grants for students in Florida...?

We Answered:

I am in the process of looking for grants and scholarships myself. Google scholarships. You will find a wealth of information in there. I have applied for a few now. They require essays and that.

Best of luck to you.

Marilyn Said:

College tuition help for kids of parents with disabilities?

We Answered:

THERE SURE ARE.... and you tell her NEVER stop, no matter how long it takes to get her education.

i dont know her interests, or details, so i will just post all that i have. take your time, pick through it, its bound to be here
-----------------------------
There are government loans & grants, and then there are private loans & scholarships.

try to aim for grants/scholarships more... they are not to be paid back. its confusing sometimes, but just keep applying. Scholarships usually have a 1 or 2 page application, and require an essay. Take your time with the essay, so yours stands out.

every big (and small) company you see (manufacturer, orgs, corps and groups also) all have grants and scholarships they hand out like candy. Walmart, Kmart, Target, Coke, computer companies etc etc etc

here are some links with a HUGE list of what is available. some you will need to copy and paste into a new window. also, fastweb (take the time to fill it in) will search databases and get back to you with a list of scholarships you qualify for.

Also contact all mens, womens associations in your state, they almost always have grants & scholarships. What ever field you are going into, contact the orgs, associations etc for them; Also check with professional organizations related to your career interests, such as the American Bar Association or the American Medical Association. they also always have scholarships. Research and dig, call then write. Its all worth it.

OVER apply; it doesnt hurt to have too many, and the extra funds can help with housing.

A lot of corporations want to be seen as "good neighbors" in the community. And they need a way to attract young workers. So some of them grant scholarships, usually from $1,500 to $10,000.

When visiting the websites of these companies, on the home page look for something like: ABOUT US or CORP INFO. Click on that, and then look for something like: COMMUNITY or COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT.

check out:
1. BestBuy (2 scholarships from each store for $1,500 and they enter you at their headquarters for a $10,000 scholarship).

2. Comcast (your high school principal must recommend you for a $1,000 scholarship. They also have paid internship at a limited number of locations nationwide.)

3. Cracker Barrel (www.cbrlgroup.com) for employees, or their children - $1,000

4. Kohls (each store awards $50 and a certificate; then submits their winners to the region. Regional winners receive $1,000 and are submitted to the corporate headquarters. Corporate level winners get a $5,000 scholarship and a $1,000 donation to their favorite charity.)

5. Wal-Mart (www.walmartfoundation.org) Each store awards $1,000 to 2 students at each school in their area. Or if you have been an employee for 12 months, you qualify to apply for a $2,500 scholarship.

6. McDonalds (as Ronald McDonald House Charities at: www.RMHC.ORG) varies by region of the county. But a typical award is $1,000. May be from the corporation or from an association of stores in your area.

Each of these companies have a simple application (1–2 pages) process.

Does anybody know of any government grants other than those provided on FAFSA?

We Answered:

Hope this helps.
