The Jack Kent Cooke Foundation (http://www.jackkentcookefoundation.org/jkcf_web/home.aspx?Page=Main) offers graduate scholarships each year. They do not target people with disabilities but their number one criteria is individuals with financial need. Applications for 2008 are now being accepted and can be initiated online.
