    (TLG), non-profit organization, is pleased to announce the 2005 College Scholarship Fund specifically for graduating high
    school seniors who have parents with disabilities.

    These awards are one of several projects of Through the Looking Glass' National Resource Center for Parents with
    Disabilities. This National Center is funded by the National Institute on Disability Research and Rehabilitation (NIDRR), U.S.
