When you have a rare disease, your money goes to a lot of different things that people without health problems don’t have to cover. Like medicine. Or therapy. Or hospitalizations. Or… the list goes on without end. Paying for college probably falls pretty low on the priority list, just out of necessity.
But there’s hope–and, believe it or not, financial aid for students who are disabled as a result of their rare disease. Here are just a few of the scholarships available:
- American Association of Health and Disability
- Disability Awareness Scholarship
- Foundation for Science and Disability
- Incight Scholarship
- Joe Cleres Memorial Scholarship
