Financial Aid!! Scholarships!!!

here's a list of scholarships for people with disabilities such as AD/HD and LD.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://add.about.com/cs/adhdincolleg...holarships.htm

^^^^^Scholarships for Individuals with ADD or ADHD are far and few between. Those who wish to apply for a scholarship based on this criteria may need to apply based on Learning Disability or Other Disability. A few of the scholarships that may fit the criteria for individuals with ADD/ADHD are listed here.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Check out:
http://add.about.com/cs/offtocollege/a/scholarships.htm

The author gives great information on how to look for scholarships

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
More scholarship opportunities to check out here:
http://www.disabledperson.com/articles/scholarship.asp

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(mostly on finding scholarships!!)
http://parentingteens.about.com/od/scholarships/

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

and of course - - - you MUST MUST MUST sign up for government financial aid:
http://www.finaid.org/

Do this as soon as your tax return comes in. You need your tax info in order to fill out the fafsa documents.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Lastly, make sure you're always browsing http://www.fastweb.com
to look for scholarships.

Think of weird things too . . . they have scholarships for lefties, if your parent was in combat, etc.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OOPS! I was wrong . . . one more "Lastly"

If one or both of your parents was in the military, please contact your local VFW or American Legion and ask about their scholarship program. I got money from the American Legion for 2 years.

Re: Financial Aid!! Scholarships!!!

Okay people, I am 23 years old and I applied for the higher education grant early this year, but I never thought I'd get it. I just got a letter today congratulating me on the award. Since I applied for the grant I have switched schools temporarily, but my new school doesn’t know about the grant. I have to call them to let them know. I have taken out 12k for this year, but cost of attendance is 18k. So when will I get it?

Re: Financial Aid!! Scholarships!!!

you'll have to ask your school or the grant as to when you'll get the money. If I recall, it's usually in October, but I could be off on that.

Congrats!!!

Re: Financial Aid!! Scholarships!!!

If it's federal grant money, you need to go to fafsa site and update and add your new school to it. Fed money is usually paid directly to the school and then any left over after tuition and fees gets refunded to you after you've attended school past a certain date, usually 6 weeks. Of course if your money if from another source it could be totally different.

It probably depends on the school, where I go to college (in East TX), we'll get our grant money in Sept. But like living.. said, ask your school. Does your school have a website? If so, they may have that information on their website.

And Congrats! That's great!

i'm studying teaching this year, and getting a scholarhip/bursary will be very easy. The government is handing them out like candy due to the lack of teachers

Re: Financial Aid!! Scholarships!!!

My daughter, who is currently in high school has ADD and applied for scholarships solely for high school seniors. There is a good list there, a lot for ADD and Non-ADD students alike.

I like to think first and foremost that she gets a scholarship based on her talents and academic prowess rather than ADD itself. Just a thought, hopefully people find it useful.

Some other ADD scholarships listed here at additudemag.com that we also found useful.
