If there is a scholarship for having ADD--I'd like to apply for that one.

If there is one--does it mean you have to go to Harvadd.

Seriously, I don't know about the scholarship--but couldn't pass up this thread. I hope there is one. I mean--there should be one as long as we keep letting the meatheads run the planet.

when I went back to school I looked for scholarships for ADHD people and found none. However, I was told that people with ADHD can apply for scholarships for people who have disabilities.

So, that's what I'd look into if I were you :)

Have you looked at online scholarship searches??
(fastweb, finaid.org/scholarships)
And remember that your school should have scholarship resources.

If your parent is a war vet, go to your local American Legion; most of them give out scholarships.

Hi dear, I know there are ways to get government grants for things like bills and stuff, but I have no idea how to go about applying for them, or what qualifications you need, etc. I am desperately trying to finish school, but may have to drop out to get a job if I can't find a way to get some money soon to take care of my family. So I was wondering if anyone knows anything about government grants. Any information would be a big help.
