Melvin and Sally Mooty Scholarship

The Scholarship for People with Disabilities program is administered by Courage Kenny through a Scholarship Committee. Funds are made available through the private donation of Melvin and Sally Mooty. Scholarships will not exceed $2,500. The scholarship monies are to fund tuition, books and classroom materials.

The program is intended to assist people who have a sensory impairment or physical disability who want to pursue educational goals or gain technical expertise beyond high school. Applicants will need to identify how a scholarship will support their educational aspirations and career goals. Selection emphasis is placed on the applicants’ intentions and achievements rather than solely on their graduation ranking.
