Raleigh Mayor’s Committee for Persons with Disabilities

The Raleigh Mayor’s Committee for Persons with Disabilities has funding from the City of Raleigh to award two scholarships for $1000 each to assist persons with documented disabilities in their pursuit of academic and vocational endeavors.

 The academic scholarship is to be awarded to a person with a disability who is pursuing an educational goal.  This scholarship is designed to assist with tuition, books, fees, and/or special equipment for undergraduate course work from an accredited institution.

 The vocational scholarship is to assist an individual with a disability to pursue a vocational education.  This money may be applied to the purchase of items such as tools, special equipment or tuition and fees to enhance and sustain employment opportunities.

 Applicants must be residents of the city of Raleigh and must be enrolled in or have been accepted to an accredited undergraduate post secondary school, college, trade school or other institution of higher learning.

 The selection of scholarship recipients shall be based upon academic performance, financial need, character, school, work and community activities, honors, ability to express him/herself in written form, personal motivation and/or leadership potential.

 The Scholarship Application must be received by The Raleigh Mayor’s Committee at the address below by May 30, 2014.  Scholarship recipients will be recognized at the July Raleigh Mayor’s Committee meeting.  For questions, call Lori Millette at 919-716-3122This link will open in a new window.

 This program will provide an investment in the capability of our disability community at large.
