Vocational and Educational Services for Indivdiuals with Disabilities
Application Procedure. Students with disabilities may obtain a list of local VESID offices from their state’s education office.
Selection of Recipients and allocation of awards. Eligibility for vocational rehabilitation services is based upon:
- the presence of a physical or mental disability that for the individual constitutes or results in a substantial handicap to employment; and
- the reasonable expectation that vocational rehabilitation services may benefit the individual in terms of employability.
Students may receive services including, but not limited to, counseling and guidance, evaluation of vocational potential, physical and mental restoration services, transportation, placement assistance and instruction, and training including that given at institutions of higher education.
The VESID office will consider college training for students when an appropriate specified vocational goal requiring this level of training has been established through the counseling and planning process between the eligible disabled individual and his or her vocational rehabilitation counselor. The training may involve full- or part-time study at the baccalaureate level leading to a degree or certificate. Training costs at institutions of higher education may be paid through the vocational rehabilitation program only after efforts have been made to secure grant assistance to cover these costs in whole or in part from other sources.
VESID policy established a maximum payment toward tuition for students in any one academic year. In some cases, students are required to share the expenses of college training according to the general VESID economic need
Students should send the Office of Student Financial Services a statement indicating total benefits VESID will cover.
