Who Can Apply:
- Joieful Connections believes that children of all abilities should have the opportunity to attend college or other forms of higher education.
- Unfortunately, college is often not accessible to students with disabilities. With disabled students making up 14% of public school students, with a total of around 7 million, it’s critical that this group has more support, so they’re able to pursue their dreams of higher education.
- This scholarship seeks to support students with a diagnosis of developmental or intellectual disabilities so they can pursue higher education.
- Any high school senior who has a diagnosis of developmental or intellectual disability may apply for this scholarship, but students in Oregon will be preferred.
Submission: To apply, tell us how you plan to further your education, what fields of study you plan to explore, and what you hope to accomplish after pursuing higher education.
Deadline: March 21, 2024
