Scott Guzzo Scholarship

Scott Guzzo Scholarship for Disability-Related Studies

Bob and Paula Guzzo created this scholarship to honor their son, Scott Guzzo, and to assist an EVSC senior to further his/her education at a post-secondary institution. 

This scholarship is intended to support the post-secondary education of EVSC students who will pursue a degree in a field related to disability issues, such as special education, therapy (e.g., occupational, physical or speech), disability studies, disability law, disability medicine, rehabilitation engineering, assistive technology, etc.

The scholarship is named for Scott Guzzo, who completed his secondary education at Evansville Central High School in 2004. In the early 1990’s, Scott was EVSC’s first student with multiple disabilities to be educated in an inclusive school setting. Scott’s successful inclusion in EVSC led to him being President Clinton’s guest at the White House for the signing of the 1997 Reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
