Kinnett Scholarships for College/Further Education 

Since 2005, the NSSED Foundation has been helping to make the dream of college a reality for many students. The Kinnett Scholarship for College/Further Education, aimed at graduating seniors from NSSED-affiliated high schools*, grants $1,000 scholarships to:
  1. Students receiving special education services pursuing further education through college, vocational school, or post-secondary programs, or
  2. Students planning on pursuing a college degree in Special Education. 

The Kinnett Scholarship was established with a bequest to the NSSED Foundation from the estates of Frances and Betty Lou Kinnett--long time community members who shared a deep commitment to education.

The deadline for applying for a Kinnett Scholarship for College/Further Education is April 6, 2018.
