The Jobtest.org (Realign, Inc.) Diverse Abilities Scholarship is a quarterly scholarship open to all students who live with a disability.
For students with disabilities, the transition from education to the workforce can have complications that other students may never experience. Many encounter societal biases, misconceptions, and other barriers that hinder their access to suitable career opportunities. These students may also face a lack of guidance, resources, and support in their educational and career journeys and may not have the chance to explore career options that align with their strengths, values, and passions.
The Diverse Abilities Scholarship aims to address these challenges by providing financial support to students with disabilities—anything from a physical disability like muscular dystrophy to a learning disability such as dyslexia. We hope this scholarship will allow them to focus on their studies and seek out a suitable career without financial constraints.
The Diverse Abilities Scholarship is driven by the belief that all students possess unique talents that are necessary to our society and should be celebrated. We hope to build a more inclusive workforce by empowering students with disabilities to find their ideal career paths and contribute their diverse perspectives and skills in whichever industry and job they choose.
