Paying for college is difficult at best, The Center has collected some resources we hope will assist parents of students with disabilities and the students themselves who are looking for college financial aid and or student financial aid. One of the best resources we have found is the Fastweb college Scholarship site which is listed above.This page is devoted to resources for disabled students in need of financial aid. At the moment it is centered around the U. S. We would like to gather information for students from all over the world. Everyone should be able to get financial aid for school if they need it. If you have other resources please let us know by contacting us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you may fill out a registration form and we will include the resource as soon as possible.
A special thanks to the members of our advisory board who contributed these links and did the research.
