I don't think I can help you if you are not a US citizen. There are a lot of financial resources available in the US for people with Ichthyosis since it is termed a disability here.
There are a lot of resources on the web for finding specific types of scholarships and I would suggest starting there. I wouldn't bother to pay for any of the fee-based services since there are so many places that give that information for free.
I don't know about where you live, but here, the local library has several books, that you can also purchase from any online bookstore, that lists scholarships available and has them catagorized for things like having a certain disability, or being male and majoring in something or other.
You might even want to contact your local school or University and ask them what reference material they have on scholarships.

I hope that gets you started.

Mohamed, I too used scholarships to pay my way through school. While I also am unaware of scholoarships for people with ichthyosis, you already have the best tool at your fingertips for finding a scholarship- the internet. Will you be going to school in Libya? I would assume some things are the same throughout the world, but contact the school you wish to attend and ask them if they have any resources you can use to find a scholarship to attend school. Also spend as much time as you can looking for information on the internet.

I tried every scholarship out there for my daughter last year. She had heart defects when she was born and a couple of other birth defects that were all corrected. She must have applied for 50 scholarships and she did not receive any.
I good source to find them is www.fastweb.com
