Grants from Other States
Out-of-state students should check with local state agencies to find out the availability of their grant programs.
Vocational Rehabilitation Scholarships
Individuals with physical disabilities classified as vocational handicaps may receive financial aid from state departments of vocational rehabilitation. Detailed information is available through the departments of vocational rehabilitation in the student’s home state.
Aid from Your Local Community
We encourage students to seek and apply for scholarships, loans, and work opportunities other than those available through the College, state, and federal funds. Suggested sources of aid include, but are not limited to the following: civic clubs, bank trust departments, churches, professional organizations, veterans groups, high school guidance office, family employer, foundations, and community employment.
