The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) is offering $1,000 scholarships to students with disabilities. The AAHD Scholarship Program is for any student with a disability, but AAHD gives preference to students majoring in public health, disability studies, health promotion or a field related to disability and health.
To apply, submit a Personal Statement of up to two pages, double spaced, including brief personal history, educational/career goals, extra-curricular activities, and reasons why they should be selected by the AAHD Scholarship Committee. This statement must be written solely by the applicant. You must also provide two letters of recommendation, a copy of your college transcript, and documentation of your disability.
For complete rules and to apply, visit the AAHD website here. Applications are due November 15, 2016. For questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
