As jobs continue to become more technical, employers are increasingly requiring post-secondary degrees or vocational certificates for entry-level positions. This requirement often creates additional obstacles for people with disabilities looking to enter the workforce; only about a third of students with disabilities graduate from either four-year universities or two-year community college programs.
To help students with disabilities achieve their career goals by completing higher education, especially as the financial cost of college continues to rise, PRIDE Industries is proud to provide scholarships to colleges and universities in specific areas where we operate.
The scholarships are open to students with disabilities at the following colleges and universities who meet the defined academic and enrollment criteria.
“I am honored to receive your scholarship. As a student who struggles with dysgraphia (a disability that affects a person’s handwriting ability and motor skills), I realized that success comes from a positive attitude. This scholarship motivates me to excel in my teaching career.”

College Scholarships for Military Children
To show its thanks and to support our troops, PRIDE sponsors four annual scholarships to sons and daughters of active duty, reserve/guard or retired military. The scholarships are administered through the Fisher House Foundation and the scholarships for Military Children Program. These financial awards help military families with tuition payment, books, lab fees, and room and board.
