Empowering People with Down Syndrome to Pursue Post-Secondary Education

 

After graduating high school, many young adults with Down syndrome are choosing to pursue post-secondary education or vocational training programs. These may include programs at community colleges, four-year universities, local vocational training programs, or any type of enrichment course that will help them prepare for their future. While they want to continue their education, they frequently do not have the financial means to do so and financial aid is rarely available. DSA of NCI is proud to facilitate and award scholarships to offer financial assistance toward continuing your education and encourages you to apply even if you are just thinking about applying to a program. The application deadline is March 1st, 2017.  

 

Eligibility Requirements

  • Up to $1,000 in scholarships will be awarded

  • The scholarship must be used to pay tuition or expenses toward college, employment training, life skills training, or another institution that offers opportunities for growth

  • Have Down syndrome and live in the DSA of NCI servicing area (see map below)
