Certificate Program Scholarship

We are pleased to announce scholarship funding is now available for our Learning Differences (LD) and Neurodiversity Certificate Program!
 

Graduation cap and tasselThrough the generous support of the Clara Freshour Nelson Foundation, we will be offering scholarships to individuals enrolled in the Landmark College online graduate certificate program in Learning Differences and Neurodiversity: Specialization in Executive Function.

A total of six individual scholarships will be awarded to cover 50% of the total tuition costs for completion of the five-course program (equivalent to $3,375 to each individual). Completion of the entire program must occur in the 2020 calendar year.

More information on the scholarship, including a scholarship application, will be provided by mid-January, 2020. In the meantime, those interested should first complete the general certificate program application, as well as review the eligibility criteria listed below. After successfully submitting the general application and acceptance, individuals will be able to then apply for the scholarship through a separate form.

 

Scholarship eligibility criteria:

  • Acceptance into the Learning Differences and Neurodiversity certificate program (application linked above)
  • Demonstrated financial need
  • Commitment to complete the entire five-course certificate program in the 2020 calendar year (January 1 through December 31st, 2020)
  • Demonstrated potential to impact students, school district, and local community

Undoubtedly, educators who receive the scholarship will benefit from this opportunity. Our approach is to work closely with educators who work with neurodiverse students to understand their schools’ strengths, as well as, needs in serving this population. The ultimate goal is a “train the trainers” approach so that the training becomes self-sustaining within schools and educational communities.

Check back for more information, including a scholarship application form, by mid-January, 2020.
