“I choose not to place ‘DIS’, in my ability.” ― Robert M. Hensel
Millions of people suffer from various physical and mental disabilities, and unfortunately, they also deal with disability discrimination and disproportionate representation in the impoverished population.
Continuing discussions and raising awareness for people with disabilities is fundamentally important to ensure equal rights, treatment, and opportunity for all people.
To support those with disabilities, the WiseGeek Disability Scholarship will be awarded to one student at any grade level or field of study who has a disability and large ambitions for their life.
The application deadline is Aug 2, 2021. Winners will be announced on Aug 23, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 23, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
