Scholarships or Grants for students with disabled parents.
« on: December 28, 2007, 02:16:30 AM »
Hello,
I am looking for scholarships and grants for fall 2008. My mother has MS, and I would like to know if anyone knows about any scholarships or grants for law students (future law students) that have parents that are affected by the disease?

Go to fastweb and try doing some google searches.  This is kind of a specific request.  Also, check into the MS Society.  I found some societies for the deaf that were offering scholarships to children of deaf parents (my mom is deaf). 

Good luck to you!

Thank You! I have looked into fastweb already and I haven't seen anything yet. I will contact the MS Society ASAP! ;D

Let me know how it turns out Tru Gem.  I know how hard life can be with a parent who needs help getting through life.
