The Disaboom Scholarship Directory for Students with Disabilities describes more than 125 financial aid programs geared toward college students or those seeking to attend college. Some of the awards are for amounts up to $20,000, while most are not less than $1,000. The directory includes scholarships and financial aid programs in three categories:

Comprehensive disability-related scholarships - for students with any type of disability;

Condition-specific scholarships - (e.g., autism, vision and hearing impairments, cystic fibrosis, learning disabilities, lupus, wheelchair use); and

Group-specific disability scholarships - (e.g., scholarships for caregivers or disabled veterans).

 If you know a current or prospective college student who might benefit from any of these scholarships, please encourage him or her to check out the Disaboom scholarship directory. You can learn more at .
