New Clemson scholarship for students with disabilities

From the Clemson Newsstand: The Clemson University Office of Access and Equity has announced a new scholarship for students with disabilities. The Ross Cathy ADA Scholarship — Embracing and Valuing Differing Abilities is offered to any current undergraduate student who has successfully registered with Clemson’s Student Accessibility Services (SAS) or provided appropriate information to the Office of Access and Equity indicating a qualified disability. The student must be in good standing and have earned a minimum of 12 semester hours with a 3.0 GPA or higher.

Ed note: That’s the good news. The bad news is that the scholarship was created by Ross Cathy, grandson of Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy. Chick-fil-A is well known to contribute large sums of money to anti-LGBTQ causes. Even though they have reduced that, the company is nowhere near to LGBTQ friendly.
