    College Scholarships or Grants?

    Has anyone researched availability of scholarships or grants for folks with disabilities? I glanced over the forums, thinking I might save time, but did not find anything. I thought Carecure had an Education section.

    Also, try Google and try typing in the phrase "scholaships for disabilities".

    Yes, I live in Louisiana and we have a program called Louisiana Rehabiliitation Services and if you apply you are approved and they will pay for your tuition, books, gas to get to and from school, room and board, and I think that's it. You have to be a full-time student in order to get this and obey their rules. Like Liz said, check with your Vocational rehab.

    I love my county, they won't pay jack for me at all. They have no funds they said. PA RULES!
    oh and if they do pay anything, as soon as I get money I have to pay it back. How did u get such a sweet deal Derek? Your seems to be state wide, while mine is county.

    I think I got this right, if my Vocational Rehab perosn , is the person who is suppose to help me get a job, and to help me do everyhting i need to do to become indepedant than i'm out of luck.

    I just asked my mom and i showed her the site, and she said we already went through all of those.

    My OVR lady also told us, if we give you anything, as soon as you get money, you have to pay us back. Meaning if i get off disability, i'm in debt still, i just owe it to a different person. Is this the case or is she making this up?

    Also the lack of funding is still there, even if its "state wide" all they do is allocate money to the county your in, if you don't have alot of disabiled people in your county then the state doesn't give your county any money.

    Did anyone else hear about you having to pay back the money you get from them?

    Dale,

    It is an interesting idea, to have an Education/School forum. Is there general interest from people about this? I am adding a poll to find out.

    Wise.
