Each scholarship has its own unique focus which can include a particular disability, such as blindness or visual impairment, or a specific career focus.

The California Association For Postsecondary Education and Disability was formed in 1975 as the first member-based, non-profit professional organization of post secondary educators of students with disabilities in the nation. The organization works with public and private higher education institutions to finance education programs and services for students with disabilities.
