Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation
The mission of the Cerebral Palsy Scholarship Foundation is to encourage and assist students with Cerebral Palsy to pursue college, university or vocational school education. We believe that education should be an achievable option, not an out of reach luxury, for these students. The website also includes other disability scholarships.
Disability Friendly Colleges
Not one college guidebook specifically addresses these needs of students with physical disabilities however, so we created this website as one place where all types of useful links and college information are gathered and kept current. We are especially proud of our interactive charts of more than 75 disability friendly colleges and their services. We hope you’ll read our blog, tell us about your college experience and help us build the first interactive “college guide” for students with physical disabilities!
