All students looking for financial assistance should work with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid. You can find information on costs of attendance, financial planning, important dates and policies at https://financialaid.arizona.edu . The site also includes a step-by-step explanation of how to apply for aid and a link to a new program: Scholarship Universe. Scholarship Universe is a portal to a wide variety of scholarships that are matched to you based on the personal information you provide. Disability is one of the characteristics you can enter.

Occasionally DRC receives information on scholarships that are available to disabled students from a variety of other sources. We send that information out on the DRC student listserv. If you are interested in scholarships, be sure to review messages from that list, especially during the spring semester.
Finally, Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) can be a good source of financial assistance for post-secondary education for some students. Students should contact an Access Consultants to learn more about VR.
