Sleep Family Scholarship For Those With Disabilities
Getting higher education has become more expensive than ever before, particularly for those with disabilities who must cover additional medical costs in addition to regular college costs like books and tuition. In order to help level the playing field for people with disabilities, Sleep Family is offering a $1,500 annual scholarship for a deserving disabled student.
They believe that by eradicating certain financial barriers, students who have disabilities will be able to concentrate more on their studies and college life rather than panicking about how they will pay their bills.
