Since 1995, the Council has used its Scholarship Fund (formerly known as our "Stipend Fund" and "Education Travel Fund") to assist Tennesseans with disabilities and their families to attend disability-related meetings, conferences and trainings held in Tennessee and across the United States. The fund also provides stipends to support conferences in Tennessee, and the mission and priorities of the Council.
