Scholarships for Students with Disabilities

No grants are made directly to students.

The Charlotte W. Newcombe Foundation continues the legacy of Mrs. Newcombe, who was unable to attend college because of a visual impairment, by supporting institutions that serves students with disabilities in their quest for higher education.

These grants support completion of degrees by students with disabilities who have documented financial need. Scholarships may be applied either to the student’s tuition and fees or to offset the student’s disability-related expenses that lie beyond the institution’s accommodation mandates and are not coverable by public disability agencies or other financial resources.

Through the Foundation’s partnership with funded institutions, student scholarship money comes from current year grants from the Foundation, matching funds provided by institutions, and income from Newcombe-endowed funds.
