Scholarships to College Students with Disabilities
by Springboard Foundation
This project’s goal is to provide scholarships to contribute to the increase in employment opportunities for college students with disabilities. This project will provide 8 general scholarships to full-time college students who have documented disabilities of any type. The qualified student must be a full-time student currently attending a four-year college or university during the year. In addition, must have already completed 24-credits and a GPA 3.0 or above.
The mission of this Foundation is to provide scholarships to college students who have documented disabilities. Approximately 11% of college freshman last year were such students. Since society has still not caught up with the realization that people with disabilities can and do go to college though typically with many more constraints than the typical college student, scholarships of this nature do not exist.
This project will help corporations and organizations to become more aware of the opportunities to hire outstanding academically college students with disabilities to work in their company’s professional positions.
With the “silver tsunami” of an aging workforce, corporations are looking for new sources for talent. This segment of the population is growing at a huge rate and will provide a tremendous talent pool as long as they have the education required.
This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
