Copy of a thread Alunasa started:

I was searching for college scholarships specifically for people with dyscalculia or other learning disabilities when I stumbled across this. I hope that it may be helpful to someone with a child who needs financial support.

This scholarship is for the state of Florida only.

McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program:
https://www.flori...y/faqs.asp

Or for a more printer friendly version go here:
http://www.florid...rint=true&

"The McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program expands statewide the school choice program originally created in 1999 as a pilot program. The scholarships are available for eligible students with disabilities to attend an eligible public or private school of their choice. Students with disabilities include K-12 students who are documented as having a mental handicap, including trainable, profound, or educable; a speech or language impairment; a hearing impairment, including deafness; a visual impairment, including blindness; a dual sensory impairment; a physical impairment; a serious emotional disturbance, including an emotional handicap; a specific learning disability, including, but not limited to, dyslexia, dyscalculia, or developmental aphasia; a traumatic brain injury; or autism."

For more information, visit their website.

Hello again,
I'm still looking for a scholarship for me, and in the process found this one. Since I'm not a high school senior, I thought I'd pass it on to you. Good Luck,

-Alunasa

Dear Likalaruku,
That's a good question. If you don't mind, please tell us what country you are in. You may have already told us this in one of your previous postings, but if you'll put that on your profile, it will 'follow you around' on the forum. Then, if someone knows of 'art scholarships' in your country, or your area, their 'offerings' will be more likely to be of benefit to you. There is one forum member who will be starting her Master's in Fine Arts next semester (or maybe it's for Fall,... I don't remember.) She's had to learn to write all kinds of appeals and requests for grants and scholarships,... but she hasn't been on the forum lately. So, please let us know what country you're in? - jus'

Thanks for the list. I am also curious if they also offer economics essays writing for plastic surgery sacramento products or any Interior Design related economics scholarships?

Hi Paige80,
I see that this is your first post here on the forum, so let me be the first to welcome you! If you're like me, and you're needing a scholarship to get your education 'paid for', you've probably been using the 'search engines' to find what you're looking for,... and the word 'scholarship' brought you here to us. ;) I was a tiny bit perplexed that you're needing a scholarship in "economics essays writing or any related economics scholarships", until I figured out that you'd probably found us while searching 'scholarships'. It could 'happen' that you would find that on our list of scholarships, or that someone here would have information for you. We're a 'helpful bunch' here. But, please let me explain something to you. This is a forum used by people who are 'dyscalculic', so, in general, we run in the opposite direction of anything that has the word 'economics' in its title. ;) Nice to meet you, Paige80. I hope this clears things up a little for you. Come back and chat anytime. - jus'
