Enhancing The Abilities Of The Disabled

There are some students who believe that their chances in getting into college are very slim. They may have a disability or some other set back that has allowed them to believe this is the case. Fortunately for those people this is not the case. There are a number of scholarship opportunities that are geared towards students with disabilities are unusual circumstances that hinder them from their dreams. Some of these circumstances are not disabilities at all, just something that makes that student different from everyone else. Keep reading to find out more information about unique scholarship opportunities.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is an extremely common condition that impacts many children. Nearly 8 to 10% of children suffer from this disorder which causes them to have difficulty following directions, lack of attention, hyperactivity, and a number of other symptoms. These types of symptoms can definitely cause setbacks in education and can be difficult for the child to overcome but it can be done.

If you are a student who has ADHD or another type of learning disability or disorder the Allegra Ford Thomas scholarship is a good opportunity for you. The award is for $2,500 and goes to a senior who has just graduated high school and is enrolled in college courses. It can be any type of school whether it is a community college or vocational school. Another promising scholarship opportunity is the Anne Ford scholarship which offers $10,000 to students with ADHD or other learning disabilities. The $10,000 would be given over a four year period so the student must be enrolled in a 4 year program.

Being left-handed is not necessarily a disability but it can be challenging. It definitely makes it more difficult to write and learn the same way that other children do. Some people find it strange, but there are some scholarships that are available to left-handed students. The Juniata Scholarship for left-handed students has an award amount of $1,000-$1,500. Obviously, you must be left-handed and currently enrolled in a program at Juniata College. This is fairly an easy scholarship to get because not many students are aware that it even exists so you should definitely give it a shot. You don’t have anything to lose by trying.

Those are just a few of the scholarship opportunities that are available for students who have experienced setbacks in their lives. Whether it be ADHD or simply that they are left-handed, there are many possibilities for these types of students. As long as you are hardworking and passionate about what you do, you can truly accomplish anything in life. Sometimes you may require a little help, but I think we all do.
