The Arc of New York is a family-based organization for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The mission of The Arc of New York is to provide people with intellectual, developmental and other disabilities the ordinary and extraordinary opportunities of life. Throughout our generosity, we offer numerous scholarships for people who want to serve the community.
Each year, The Arc New York presents scholarships to individuals pursuing degrees in special education, physical or occupational therapy, or a field related to intellectual or other developmental disabilities. Scholarships are available to physical or occupational therapy degree students, full-time college students in programs related to intellectual and developmental disability field, members of the Arc New York Chapters, and students enrolled in a New York State degree program leading to a special education certification.
