Planning to take one of our Rett University courses, but find yourself under financial hardship? We want to help you get the education you need!

Every year, Rett University awards scholarships to students who want to take our online courses, but are unable to do so because of financial need.

This online financial aid program is funded and maintained by Rett University, Girl Power 2 Cure and their partners as part of our mission to help all families and professionals supporting individuals with Rett Syndrome access quality education provided by world-renowned Rett Syndrome Specialists.

Awards are based on both merit and financial aid need and are available to international students as well. 

Scholarships provided in partnership with Claire’s Crusade, an organization dedicated to supporting students with Rett Syndrome.

Special thanks to our donors and sponsors whose financial support has provided for this scholarship program.
