This Scholarship is awarded in honor of a high school senior formally diagnosed with dyslexia who is a worthy role model for others, refuses to be limited by the challenges of learning differences, strives for excellence, chooses to live as an achiever, and enriches the lives of the families, friends, employers & communities with whom he/she interacts.
The Scholarship recipient will be awarded a cash prize of $250 to support this student’s postsecondary education endeavors. The recipient will have an opportunity to accept this award at the 27th Annual Dyslexia Symposium and Keynote Speaker Dinner to be held on Thursday evening, February 26, 2015 at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

Monies may also be used for young adults (18-30) in need of remediation services for dyslexia or related reading disorders, whether or not they attend a post-secondary institution.
