$500 HOPE College Scholarship. Students dealing with disability will be able to apply for an annual college scholarship. Students desiring to work in a field that will benefit the disability community may also apply. Fill out a scholarship application and include an essay to be reviewed and selected by the board of directors. The number of scholarships and award amount will be determined based on funds available. Generally, we are able to give several $500.00 scholarships per year.
We received this note from one of our scholarship recipients:
I’m just writing to let you all know that I recently accepted a full time position with Lehigh University working for a program called Transition and Assessment. I will be working with two individuals with both physical and developmental disabilities.
Lehigh also offered me a full scholarship for their masters program! Obviously I feel extremely blessed! I also wanted to let you know that I have been “paying forward” the generosity of your scholarship and recently have been helping a young single mom with two very sick and disabled children.
Thank you for all you continue to do!
HOPE Grant helps provide funds to pay for the needs of a person with a disability. We’ve provided the funds to build a ramp into a home for a wheelchair bound young boy. We purchased a voice controlled laptop computer for a young elementary student. We helped pay the rent for a family struggling to make ends meet.
