NYSILC Supported Patricio “Pat” Figueroa Scholarship

Since 2012, the New York State Independent Living Council, Inc. (NYSILC) has actively supported leadership opportunities for young adults with disabilities through the Patricio “Pat” Figueroa Scholarship.

This scholarship awards young adults (ages 18-28) up to $250 to attend conferences, training seminars, and other events to enhance their leadership abilities. The funding is aimed to help defray the cost of travel, food, and other out of pocket expenses.

This year, there is a timely opportunity to apply for scholarship money for the NYAIL Conference, held September 18-19th 2017 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. For more information about the conference, click here: NYAIL Conference.

Award recipients are asked to provide two items: documentation via a reimbursement form and completion of a follow up survey summarizing their experience.

The council makes decisions on a first-come first-served basis while attempting to maximize resources. Decisions also stem from a cost and need basis of the applicant. NYSILC aims to represent as many young leaders throughout the state as possible.
