Need Some Cash for College?

Posted by grizzlymedia on February 1, 2009


Do you have a parent with a disability? Are you looking for a college scholarship? If the answer to both of these questions is “yes,” then you need to check out Through the Looking Glass and its National Center for Parents with Disabilities and their Families. This organization is making five scholarships of $1000 available to high school seniors and five more scholarships of $1000 to current college students for the 2009-2010 school year. Winners will be selected on the basis of academic performance, community service, letters of recommendation, and an essay describing the experience of growing up with a parent with a disability. The scholarships are part of a research study on young adult children of parents with disabilities, so you would be asked to participate in an optional survey. The deadline for submitting your application is March 16, 2009. For more information, visit Through the Looking Glass.
