Access to knowledge is our passion.
When it comes to educational and career aspirations for individuals with disabilities, we don’t want anything to stand in the way. We believe every person has valuable strengths, infinite capacity to learn, and the ability to make important contributions to our community. That’s why we’re proud to offer the Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities Scholarship Program to assist individuals in making the most of their talents as they pursue education and promising careers.
Recipients of a scholarship will receive a one-time award of up to $500. Awards are paid directly to the institution or towards the reimbursement of supplies. Scholarships are awarded based on the strength of the applicant’s academic background, leadership skills, and demonstrated passion.

- Must be a Chandler resident
