2009/2010 Incight Scholarship Recipients Announced

This has been an amazing summer for Incight. We received over 1,700 applications for our scholarship and it has been an extremely difficult task to narrow it down to only 100 individuals that will receive the award. We recruited leaders in the disability community to help us a review and rate the applications. Our review committee all agreed that that there are far more qualified applicants than there are scholarships to grant.

Here are the 2009/2010 Incight Scholars

Unfortunately Incight cannot support every person that applied for our scholarship but Incight is a resource for every person with a disability. In addition to the scholarships that Incight grants we also have many other programs (employment, independence and networking) to support people with disabilities. You can find more about our programs at and learn how you can stay connected and benefit from Incight.

We wish all of our applicants the best of luck in the coming year and we hope to stay connected to all of you all!!!

Incight Scholarship Decisions

Dear Incight Scholarship Applicant,

The Incight Staff wants to thank everyone who submitted an application for our Scholarship Award. This year we have received 1,636 applications for this coming academic year scholarship.

We are currently in the process of reading each of one of them and selecting which ones to award. Due to the record breaking amount of applications, it is taking us longer than we originally anticipated. Notification of our decisions will be sent out around the beginning of July. We are continually astonished when reading through the applications. Every application is a reflection of amazing self-determination, strength and creativity. It is very difficult to be able to award only to a limited number of applicants. This year’s number of $750 awards will be 100. I hope that you will be among them.

There are approximately 56,000,000 disabled Americans. Only about 18% earn a college degree. The number of full-time gainfully employed disabled is only a little more than 20%.

You and the rest of the 1,573 applicants are on your way to being among the top 18% and 20% respectively, whether or not you receive one of our scholarships. We at Incight offer our congratulations that you are already on your way. If you aren’t sure about what we are suggesting, then please reread your own application: revisit your already demonstrated strengths.

Incight would like to recommend to you that you do all you can to receive as much support as you can from your schools Office for Students with Disabilities and other agencies in your community that exist to serve people with disabilities. This country and especially other people with disabilities can benefit from you succeeding in your own personal career path. As you take care of yourself and as you get service agencies to serve you, then you are helping make our social systems work better. Anyone of us can contribute to making our world a better place.

Incight exists to do our best to help you achieve in your education and in your world of work. Call on us as you will.
