Incight’s 2018 Scholarship Program is now accepting
applications for students with disabilities

Are you a student with a disability who is going to higher education in Oregon or Southwest Washington? The Incight 2018 Scholarship Application is now open through April 1, 2018. 

Since 2004, Incight has awarded more than 850 scholarships to students with disabilities pursuing higher education. These scholars are enrolled in Community College, University, Vocational School and Graduate Programs. Up to 100 students who demonstrate outstanding service to their community and overcome personal obstacles are awarded scholarships from Incight.

A new requirement for applicants is they must be attending a college in Oregon or Southwest Washington. Applicants must have a documented disability and be attending higher education following their application year. Full-time enrollment must also be maintained.

More information, including the scholarship application, for the 2018-19 Incight Scholarship program is available on the website. Incight also provides an application guide.

Incight was founded in 2004, by Vail Horton, who is a congenital amputee from Palm Desert, and Scott Hatley from Portland, who has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. The name Incight comes from a hybrid of the word Incite – to spark a passion, and Insight – to possess intimate knowledge. This hybrid describes the founders original intention – to destroy the stigma that surrounds disability and fill in the gaps of other support services. The mission is to unlock the potential of people with disabilities.
