Learning disability scholarships can help you fund your college education despite having disabilities. These disability scholarship programs are designed to meet the unique qualifications and learning needs of students with learning disabilities. Also included are a few scholarships for disabilities that may coexist with learning disabilities.
As with any application process, I recommend you be alert to possible scams and that you not apply to any scholarship program that requests application fees or other fees.
