In these tough economic times, it is difficult for many people to afford college courses. It's sometimes even more difficult for those who have a disability. Help is available, though, for people with Down syndrome who are interested in applying for a post-secondary program or just want to take a few enrichment classes.
For the past six years, the Joshua O’Neill and Zeshan Tabani Enrichment Fund has awarded $2,000 to five applicants per year, and this year is no different. Even those who have not yet decided whether to take a course or have not been accepted into a program are encouraged to apply for this scholarship. The funds may be used at a college, university, learning center, or an employment training program. The application must be postmarked by July 12, 2010, and scholarship winners will be notified by August 31, 2010.
