Short Essay & Selection Process

All scholarships we offer require an applicant to write a short essay between 500 and 1,500 words. Essay topics vary depending on the scholarship and are judged by our team of senior disability advocates based on originality, writing style, quality of content, and degree of research (if applicable). The essay portion is the bulk of the application and is used to determine the winner of a scholarship.

All applications should be submitted via email no later than the application deadline. Once the application period has closed our judges will read all of the essays and choose winners by the third week of August. Winners will be published on the scholarship page and promoted on our social media accounts. The winners will receive a one-time award paid directly to the institution they are currently attending. The award must used to finance educational expenses such as tuition, fees, books, housing, travel costs, meal plans, etc.
