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.
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.
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.
