Anne and Matt Harbison were very important in the founding of the P Buckley Moss Society. Since Anne was a school counselor, she understood firsthand the challenges faced by the many students with learning disabilities today. Students with a learning disability many times graduate from high school with no acknowledgment of all their learning disabilities toward achieving their academic, technical, or artistic goals. When a student does reach and even go beyond all expectations, there is no recognition from this hard work. The P. Buckley Moss Society created this scholarship – the Anne and Matt Harbison Scholarship to acknowledge this achievement.

  9. Irene,

    we don’t know of any specific scholarships for that. You may be able to apply for need based grants such as the Pell grant. Grants are need based and you will have to qualify based on low income. Also look into FSEOG.

    Hello, when I was a child of ten I won an art scholarship to Carnegie Institute of Art in Pittsburg, PA. I wasn’t able to complete my art career because my family wasn’t intact and I had to move to many different families in different states. I often wondered where my life would have taken me and not having a career has always haunted me. Would that money be available to me now? I am a Cancer patient, Ovarian Cancer and do my best to make women aware of this disease since there is nothing out there about it. Seems the Breast Cancer people have managed to get all the publicity. Shame on the American Cancer Society…

    Thank you,

    Elayne Werner
