Scholarships for Students with LD

Students with learning difficulties whose grades and test scores may not reflect their true abilities are often overlooked in the race for college scholarships. If that describes your child (or a child you know), check out the RiSE Scholarship Foundation, a resource for “students who learn differently” seeking scholarship information and opportunities.

Founded in 2010, this non-profit has already awarded more than 70 scholarships to deserving students. Their mission is “to reward students with learning disabilities, who have shown determination, self advocacy and success in overcoming their difficulties and are pursuing post secondary education. RiSE Scholarship Foundation Inc. aims to offer meaningful scholarships to award the success of students, to bring awareness, and education to the subject of learning disabilities.”
