disABLEDperson, Inc. is excited to announce our Spring 2013 nationally based scholarship competition for college students with disabilities! This competition begins on February 20, 2013 and ends on April 12, 2013 for the award of $1000.00 (one thousand dollars)! Our competition is late this spring. We hope our winner will enjoy their award during the summer months.
To participate, follow these simple steps: Write an essay with no more than 750 words (prompt can be found below). Click on the āRegister Nowā link below. Fill out the form completely and paste your essay into the form.
A few reminders: Please keep in mind that the form must be filled out completely. We cannot accept incomplete or fraudulent forms. Correct spelling and grammar is imperative. Please submit carefully edited drafts only.
In order to qualify, the student must be enrolled in a 2 or 4 year accredited college or university in the United States of America. They must be a full-time student and U.S. citizen (minimum of 12 credits for undergraduate, 9 credits for graduate). Unfortunately, we are not able to award scholarships to high school students or college students who are not attending classes full-time.
Upon winning, the student will prove disability through their Disability Student Services department. We define disability as described under the ADA: āA 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 April 12, 2013 deadline. The winner will be announced on our website on May 1, 2013. All decisions made by disABLEDperson, Inc. are final.
The essay question for this competition is: āObama Care! Good or bad for the economy?”
Note: any essay exceeding 750 words will be disqualified.
