Making a Difference Together

Check out UCT’s scholarships!

Posted on Jan 07, 2020 by: David Knapp

Do you have a child or grandchild headed off to college soon? My son graduated from The Ohio State University in December. If it weren’t for all the scholarships he received – especially during his freshman year – I don’t know how he would have made it through. Wow, now it’s time for him to start navigating the real world!

Let’s face it, a college education is expensive. That’s why UCT is here to help. Is there a senior in your life who could use a four-year scholarship to the college or university of their choice? Do you know a student in their junior or senior year of college or already graduated who wants to teach individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities? UCT offers three different scholarships, which you can find under UCT in Action on our website at www.uct.org. Below are the three scholarships:

The UCT Heaston Scholarship
The UCT Heaston Scholarship helps students achieve their dreams of a college education. The program consists of three scholarships granted to three students annually; each covering four years of undergraduate education. The scholarships are:

  • The Jack & Betty Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $6,000 per year for four years
  • The Betty Y. Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $3,000 per year for four years
  • The Jack Heaston Memorial Scholarship – $3,000 per year for four years

Applications are due March 15, and scholarship awards are announced after May 1.

The UCT Scholarship Program
The UCT Scholarship Program, funded by UCT Charities, provides scholarships to students and teachers seeking college degrees or certification to work with people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Applicants must meet specific guidelines.

Applications are due November 15.
