The following links have been shared with us, or we have found them on the net. Obviously, we have not checked them as to their use for particular individuals. As a fellow student, I strongly encourage people to apply for scholarships. A successful scholarship application can return a lot money per hour of effort. -Norm
The goal of this website is to educate students about scholarship access and the necessary requirements for achieving maximum financial aid. In addition, we provide our information free of charge to help students avoid scholarship scam artists and misleading authors who promise "secrets" to what is essentially publicly available information.
The links in the first section directly below are to sites that are specific to the community of people with disabilities. If you know of other such links we would love to hear from you so that we can share them.
