Not only is the Test Prep Insight team focused on providing high-quality, unbiased content about exams such as the MCAT, LSAT and GMAT, but we’re also committed to giving students with disabilities a better chance to achieve their professional goals. Our annual scholarship program allows us to level the financial playing field so that students with disabilities can earn the degree of their dreams. We want this group of students to be able to focus on academics rather than external financial circumstances.
Applicants must be currently enrolled at or planning to attend a 2-4 year university, community college or graduate school program located in the United States.
Candidates must have a medically recognized physical or mental disability.
The minimum GPA required for application is 2.5, indicating that all candidates are in good academic standing.
How to Apply
To apply, please write a short essay (no longer than 1,000 words) or create a short video (no longer than five minutes) that addresses the following questions:

- What is your ultimate goal or dream job? What are the steps you are taking to achieve your goals?
- How do you plan to give back to the community and/or help future students achieve their academic goals?
Try to include as many personal anecdotes and examples as possible so the Scholarship Committee can get to know you on a personal level.
