2014-2015 HEATH NYTC Planning Ahead: Financial Aid for Students with Disabilities
While education beyond high school in the United States is optional, it has become a necessary investment in future employment and life satisfaction for many people. Most, however, cannot afford to make this investment without some outside monetary assistance. Over the years, public and private sources of money have been developed specifically to meet this need. As increasing, but limited, amounts of money have become available, a standardized method of determining eligibility has evolved to promote equitable distribution of student financial aid. To all families and youth with disabilities looking for information on financial aid, please check out the different options in grants, loans, work-study, and scholarship opportunities. This is a resource guide that explains financial aid as well as highlights various scholarship resources for youth with disabilities listed in the back of the publication!!
