Douglas E. Severance, MD
Family Medicine
Young people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) can get scholarships if they qualify for them. Check out the financial aid office at the college or university you want to attend. Ask if any scholarships are available for students with ADHD. Also, you may qualify for scholarships based on financial need, academics, athletics, or other categories.

Financial aid counselors at colleges and universities are usually up-to-date about available funding for students. Sometimes having ADHD can help you qualify for a scholarship that another student may not qualify for.
