Designed for advisors, administrators, and others who may assist disabled students in finding financial assistance for postsecondary education, this newsletter presents a discussion of the current status of federal financial aid legislation and related Vocational Rehabilitation agencies. Topics include private scholarship information, a 1983 conference calendar, information about student design and playwriting competitions, and recommended reading concerning employment for disabled students. In addition, recent newsletters, conferences, reports, fact sheets, resource guides, training modules, and other new resources focusing on events and issues affecting the lives of students with disabilities are briefly described. The final section presents questions and answers concerning LSAT examination adaptations for the disabled, the responsibilities of a university to assure accessibility of fraternities and sororities, and career planning for students who are profoundly hearing impaired.
