The American Association on Health and Disability (AAHD) has announced their 2013-2014 scholarship program for students with disabilities. It has long been a policy of AAHD to assist those with disabilities in pursuing higher education. Last year four scholarships were awarded from a pool of over 100 qualified applicants.
The mission of AAHD is to contribute to national, state, and local efforts to promote health and wellness in people with disabilities and identify effective intervention strategies that reduce health disparities between people with disabilities and the general population. AAHD accomplishes its mission through research, education and advocacy at the national, state and community level.
To apply for this scholarship program, applicants must be enrolled in an accredited United States university, part time or full time if in graduate school or full time if in undergraduate school. They must have a documented disability and be able to provide documentation. They must also be a US citizen or legal resident living in the US.
