Parking Services Scholarship for Accessibility

This scholarship is a needs-based scholarship for students who require assistance for the cost of psychoeducational or neuropsychological testing of learning disabilities. Recipients are either undergraduate or graduate UMass Amherst students in good academic standing with financial need as verified by the Financial Aid Office. Applicants must also be a first-time applicant for this scholarship, and also must be able to provide documentation of their need and a quote of the cost for testing (e.g. a signed and dated statement, on letter head, by a qualified neuropsychologist, Ph.D., or Psy.D.).

Priority will be given to applicants with the greatest financial need. Awards will vary in amount, depending on the availability of funds and the circumstances of each application (including the financial need of the applicant). It should be noted that award decisions will not be immediate, and funds may not be immediately available. Therefore, applicants are advised to time their requests and schedule their testing accordingly.
