International Dyslexia Association - Southern California Tri-Counties Branch
Partial Scholarships to IDA members belonging to the So. Cal. Tri-Counties Branch

In 1994, we began the Dovid Richards Scholarship Fund. From 1994 to 2000, we offered scholarships for our after-school literacy classes. Since 2000, we have been offering scholarships for individuals (teachers and parents) to attend teacher training conferences. Earnings from The Dovid Richards Scholarship Fund provide scholarships to our local conferences. We urge educators and parents to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity. Those who have attended past major conferences advance their appreciation of the vast knowledge available to help special kids and they substantially enhance their understanding and knowledge levels.

 

We award scholarships to all qualified individuals on a “first-come” basis, as long as money remains in the budget — so apply early!
