Disabled students hoping to attend Southern Illinois University may soon get some financial help.  WSIL reports that an alumnus is donating one-point-three-million dollars in scholarships for disabled students.  Jim Greenwood chose SIU in 1961 because it was one of a few universities that was wheelchair accessible.  

He died in 2009 after a long career at IBM, and after his wife died this year the family estate announced the donation.
