Hello and welcome ,

I have a son with FMS and is in colledge he's just about to turn 19. Some one else asked about FMS scholarships none of us knew of any but, have you asked your councilar or student aid dept yet?

If you do find something out please let us all know. Wish I could help you more on that one.

Good luck :

Take care ~Kim & Gary~

Kim and Gary,
Thank you for responding. It is good to know that I am not the only one out there that is this young. I haven't talked to my school about it because they do not give any disability/illness-related scholarships or financial aid. I will try to find out more soon.

I would check with your local Vocational Rehab as they sometimes help children with disabilities with their educational needs.

When I was in college, there was an Office of Disability Concerns as well as another similar office off-campus. They provided a little of my housing for me.
