By doing a quick search using the well-respected College Board Scholarship Search (they don’t sell your email address so you don’t get a lot of irrelevant spam), I found the info in this link:
http://apps.collegeboard.com/cbsearch_ss/servlet/scholarshipsearchservlet?SS_ACTION=DB_QUICKSEARCH&searchType=scholarship&q=special%20education

However, the scholarships/grants listed in the above link are regional in nature and limited to just residents of a particular state (Indiana or Illinois) or to attending a school in a particular state (Illinois.)

There are a lot of scholarships to help support students in teacher education programs. If you would like to use the excellent College Board Scholarship Search database, by filling out the online questionnaire with your personal information you may narrow down the list of scholarships that may be relevant to your needs. Here is the link to that web page:
http://apps.collegeboard.com/cbsearch_ss/welcome.jsp

My public library also has an electronic database that can be accessed from home (with a valid library card). It’s called GrantSelect. If you are not familiar with the electronic databases subscribed to by your public library, then I recommend you telephone the library and talk with a reference librarian about them and ask if GrantSelect is one of the databases the library makes available and how to use it.

Above all, be sure to talk with the financial aid counselor (or counselors) at the college/university (or colleges/universities) to which you have applied or to which you are interested in applying. A lot of schools have scholarship funds available for just their own students.

Added: I forgot to mention that the U.S. Dept. of Education FAFSA web pages has a database to search for scholarships, too. From the FAFSA home page:
http://www.fafsa.ed.gov
Click on the link near the top of the page: Student Aid on the Web
On the Student Aid on the Web page, scroll down and click on the link to: Financial Aid and Scholarship Wizard
I recommend you use both the Search for Scholarships link and the Scholarship Matching Wizard link. The 2nd one involves a questionnaire eliciting personal info but may be able to identify scholarships better for you. I tired the 1st link and entered “special education” as the search phrase. Some results came up. I didn’t look at them all, but the ones I did look at were all specific to a college/univ. or colleges/universities or for a particular location, etc.
