Assisting In Education!

Of all the programs offered by Mays Mission for the Handicapped, scholarships to people with disabilities is one of the “crown jewels.” Not many people would even notice that it probably takes more funding to educate someone with a disability than their able-bodied peers. Specialized equipment, dorm room or apartment modification, tutoring and attendant care are just a few of the excess costs that have faced some of our previous and current scholarship recipients.

            The easy road in life for these people might be contentment with a high school education and mediocre employment. Yet, with hard-nosed determination and true grit these individuals are extremely determined to face the challenges and hurdle the obstacles that have been set before them and pursue their dreams.

            We have been offering scholarship opportunities for more than 30 years. People with disabilities have the same desires as you and I. They dream and set goals just as you and I do. We have assisted a quadriplegic studying aerospace engineering, a totally blind man studying law, numerous individuals studying education and a wide gamut of other fields of study.

            One of the most difficult jobs to do is to choose just who will receive a scholarship. All those whom applied seemed very worthy of assistance and we wish them all the best. To those who were chosen we also wish the best and hope to bring you success stories about each of them in the months and years to come.

            For more information on our scholarship program call us at 1-888-503-7955 or email us at info@maysmission.org and request our free brochure, Preparing for College – Grants and Scholarships, to pass out to schools in your area. Thank you.

  1. Hello,

    I was emailing to inquire on when you will be announcing those chosen for the 2020 scholarship. I submitted my application via US mail on June 26, 2020.

    Thank you once again for supporting continued education and your consideration.

    Respectfully,

    Christian Jones
