2020 Scholarship

2020 LEARNING DISABILITIES ASSOCIATION OF IOWA SCHOLARSHIP FOR INDIANOLA HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS:
INFORMATION AND APPLICATION FORMS   –  Revised 1/30/2020
Application Forms – Indianola High School Seniors Only

 

The Learning Disabilities Association of Iowa (LDA-IA) will award one scholarship to an Indianola High School senior who plans to enroll in post-secondary education (college or vocational) in the fall of 2020.  The family of long-time board member Marvin Van Sickle has provided funding for this scholarship.
We regret that no other LDA-IA scholarships will be offered this year due to the lack of additional funding.

DESCRIPTION: 
The scholarship will assist a graduating senior with learning disabilities in pursuing post-secondary education at an accredited institution which provides:
 a two or four-year college program, or
•  vocational training

Students who will continue to be served by an IEP in a 4 + 1 or fifth-year program to attend college will not be eligible for these scholarships.

NUMBER AND AMOUNT:
One scholarship valued at $1000 will be awarded to a student graduating from Indianola High School.
•  Preference will be given to applicants who meet one of the following requirements:
♦  Applicant is a current member of LDA-Iowa
♦  Applicant’s parent is a current member of LDA-Iowa

Information about LDA membership is available on the website: http://ldaiowa.org/membership.  Annual dues include membership in the Learning Disabilities Association of America and LDA-IA.

PAYMENT PROCEDURES:
After receiving proof of enrollment, a check for $250 payable to the student will be sent.  After receiving proof that the recipient has completed vocational training or the first full-time year of study, the remainder of the scholarship, $750, will be paid to the student.
APPLICATION DEADLINE:
The scholarship recipient will be selected from applications that have been postmarked no later than March 30, 2019.  The scholarship winner will be announced on the LDA-IA website (www.ldaiowa.org) on May 8th.
