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.

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.
