CHAMPAIGN -- A UI student's intelligence is being recognized worldwide.
CHAMPAIGN -- A UI student's intelligence is being recognized worldwide. Bradley Sturt was one of sixteen in North America to get the Google Lime Scholarship. It's given to students with disabilities who excel in Computer Science.

Sturt visited the Google Office in New York and met people from all over the world. He says the scholarship will not only help his family financially, but show people dealing with a disability that the sky's the limit.

"Everybody has so much potential and so much to bring to the table. From my experience with disabilities and interacting with other people with disabilities, it doesn't hinder what they bring to the table. They just have to go about it a different way."

The scholarship awards $10,000 to help pay for tuition.
