Academic Scholarship

We invite all students with disabilities enrolling in their first or second year of college during the school year to apply for the John Weir Academic Scholarship, named in honor of one of the CIL founders.


For new applicants, to be eligible for the John Weir Scholarship, you must:

  • Have a significant disability of any kind – for example, physical, visual, developmental, cognitive, hearing, learning, emotional, or other;
  • Live in Washtenaw, Livingston, or Monroe County, Michigan; and
  • Plan to attend, be starting, or in the first two years of a 2- or 4-year college, university, or trade school program.

*A scholarship recipient is eligible for a renewal of their scholarship for an additional year if they are entering their 2nd year of a 2- or 4-year colleague, university, or trade school program.
