disABLEDperson, Inc. and co-sponsor eQuest are excited to announce disABLEDperson’s Spring 2014 nationally based scholarship competition for college students with disabilities. This competition begins on January 13, 2014 and ends on March 15, 2014 for the $1000.00 award.
Important! You need to “Sign up now” on disABLEDperson.com as a community member!
To participate, follow these simple steps: Write an essay with no more than 750 words (prompt can be found below). Click on the “Register Now” 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 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 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, 2014 deadline. The winner will be announced on our website on March 31 2014. All decisions made by disABLEDperson, Inc. are final.
The essay question for this competition is:
“Do you believe ObamaCare will eventually be beneficial for our country”?
Note: any essay exceeding 750 words will be disqualified.
