Students with ADHD can access this $2,000 grant

Students who learn differently can also be eligible for scholarships

Students who have been diagnosed with ADHD or a learning disability are invited to apply for this Edge Foundationscholarship which specifically targets them

Going through college is hard enough as it is for a regular student, but it can be ten times harder for a person who has a learning disability or ADHD.

Although ADHD is not considered a learning disability per se, research indicates that 30 to 50 percent of students with ADHD also have a specific learning disability, so the two conditions are intertwined.

Starting college should be an exciting time for any student, yet for those with learning disabilities or ADHD it can create a lot of anxiety. Fortunately, people affected by these conditions have the possibility of opting for an online college course.

Applying for bachelor or associate degrees online takes the uneasiness of having to socialize with new classmates and faculty members and makes the experience a lot easier on the sufferer’s psyche.

Furthermore, there’s another aspect to consider which can change the dynamics of the equation – funding. Traditionally bachelor or associate degrees online cost less than their traditional counterparts, which means you might be able to pay for it faster. Especially if you benefit from a scholarship.

As a student suffering from ADHD or a learning disability you are eligible to apply for scholarships which are exclusively targeting those affected by these conditions.

For example, the Michael Yasick ADHD Scholarship has been created to provide support for individuals who have been diagnosed with ADHD and are looking to pursue a college education. The Scholarship offers $2,000 in funding, but also includes a prepaid year of ADHD coaching from the Edge Foundation to assist in meeting the challenges of college. This applies even for students who have enrolled with an online college course program, as well.

Since it has been established in 2011, this Scholarship program has awarded 298 scholarships to individuals affected by ADHD in the US. So, how do you go about to applying for this grant?

You’ll need to send in medical documents which demonstrate you have officially been diagnosed with ADHD. On top of that, you have to be under the care of a licensed health professional specializing in ADHD at the time of your application.

The scholarship is awarded by the Edge Foundation which is a non-profit organization based in Seattle, Washington. The Foundation provides access to qualified, professional coaches for students with ADHD with the aim to provide structure, support and accountability and to teach the student to provide these things to himself or herself.

This isn’t the only scholarship for ADHD suffers. For example, the Rise Scholarship Foundation awards $2,500 to five students with ADD or ADHD or additional learning disabilities. To apply for this program, you need to demonstrate a minimum GPA of 2.5.

Just because you learn differently, doesn’t mean you can’t. That’s the message these scholarships want to convey to you. So if you are looking to go to college and have been diagnosed with one of the conditions mentioned above, go ahead and try to apply for one of these grants. They will make your educational journey easier.
