Scholarships for Students with Disabilities

A List of General Scholarships 
for Students with Disabilities
 
"According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), approximately 11% of undergraduate students have a disability. Considering that around 20.2 million students are enrolled at U.S. colleges, an estimated 2 million of them are likely living with some type of a disability. This may include a visual impairment, a specific learning disability, an orthopedic impairment, hard of hearing/deafness, or a speech disability, among others. Many of these students receive federal financial aid in the form of grants and loans, while some work part-time and/or receive financial assistance from their families to help pay for college. As medical and tuition costs continue to rise, however, more and more scholarships for students with disabilities are being made available to fill critical financial gaps."

W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center

The W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center, located in the heart of the Cal Poly Pomona campus, is a showcase facility that houses approximately 100 purebred Arabian horses.  The horses of the W.K. Kellogg Arabian Horse Center serve as ambassadors of the Arabian breed at many different events. The most notable of these events is the Sunday show, a tradition that has been continued from the days of the original Kellogg ranch. Sunday shows are staged at the Horse Center at 2:00 pm on the first Sunday of every month, from October through May. 

The Arabian Horse Center is generally open for self-guided tours from 8-4 seven days / week, excluding major holidays.  Campus events and closures, weather, and other situations can affect this, so please check our Facebook page or call for specific information.  For the 2016-2017 academic year, tours led by our student ambassadors will be offered at 11 am Tuesdays and 1:30 pm Wednesdays. To ensure we have a student scheduled, please RSVP by emailing  arabianhorse@cpp.edu or call (909) 869-4988.
