Does NIDILRR make grants to students? If not, who does?

The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation does not fund individual grants to students for the purpose of college or graduate level education. We recommend the following resources to find grants, scholarships, and benefits which you may help you finance your education:

These are just a few of the resources we identified online. Searching for scholarship opportunities can be time consuming, but worth it. If you're already in school or have applied, make sure to be in touch with a financial aid officer as well as the office of disability services, as they may know of other programs you may qualify for.

As always, read application instructions carefully. Beware of scholarship scams and fee-for-service programs. Understand your rights and responsibilities as an applicant, grantee, or borrower.

Good luck!
