Welcome to the Governor's Coalition for Youth with Disabilities website! GCYD is an all volunteer non profit organization whose mission is to provide scholarships to qualified high school students with disabilities seeking to continue their training or education. Through the generosity of several state agencies, state and private colleges, businesses and individual donors, GCYD is able to award financial scholarships to deserving high students with disabilities on an annual basis.

If you are interested in supporting the mission of GCYD, please click the "Donate" link below -- every little bit helps. If you would like to help in other ways, please lick the "Get Involved" link below for more details.
