As you can see, there really are few options available in terms of amputee scholarships. However, you should make it a point to check in with amputee organizations often to inquire as to whether they are aware of any additional – new – amputation scholarships that have become available for amputees, as this is information that is not widely reported in most cases. You should additionally apply for any other disability related scholarships that may apply to your specific situation as well, as well as academic scholarships, and scholarships that are guaranteed because you have achieved certain things, or hold certain memberships – such as belonging to a particular church affiliation. Focusing on disability scholarships in general may broaden your scholarship choices ten fold when looking for scholarships for amputees.
