I do wish that there was a federal grant for students with disabilities attending college with low incomes, regardless of major. Most students with disabilities who attend college cannot work and go to college at the same time, which in the end leaves them with an enormous amount of debt. And SSI doesn't really begin to make a dent in college costs.

Stephanie, yes, a grant like that would be very helpful.
