Scholarship Applicant Information
Dear Applicant,
Welcome to the Incight Scholarship application. Since 2004, Incight has awarded more than 850 scholarships to students with disabilities pursuing higher education. Incight Scholars are supported throughout college and provided opportunities for trainings, internships and mentoring. Incight Scholars have achieved careers in technology, education, science, and medicine! Incight Scholars break through barriers by becoming change agents in our community and leading by example.
 
Eligibility: 
All students who plan to begin post-secondary studies at colleges or trade/professional schools are eligible for these grants provided that enrollment is in Oregon or SW Washington. The applicant must have a documented disability, be enrolled full-time and remain in "good-standing". For more information about eligibility please visit incight.org/education/scholarship.


Description of Awards:
Each award will represent a scholarship grant provided to the selected students. These grants should not be mistaken in any way for student loans. While a student may apply for consideration for a grant prior to being accepted at a college or trade/professional school, he/she must provide documentation in the form of an admissions acceptance letter to Incight before the grant will be finalized. The exact number of awards and the total amount of money to be awarded in 2017 will be determined during the selection process, at the sole discretion of Incight.
 
All grants are made payable to the colleges or other post-secondary institutions where the recipients will attend during the 2017-18 school year. As was previously mentioned, the student must provide Incight a copy of an admissions acceptance letter to an accredited school. It is the intent of The Incight Scholarship Foundation that the full amount of these grants will be applied toward the recipient's school expenses.
