Great News: AZ IDA is providing financial resources for those who are interested in becoming educated in dyslexia.
Our ongoing goal is to provide an opportunity for those who want to learn more about dyslexia screening, advocacy, intervention, or training. Thanks to successful fundraising efforts, we can offer reimbursement for completion of courses and programs that increase your knowledge about dyslexia.
There are many courses eligible for reimbursement (see below), but we also want to encourage you to apply for dyslexia conferences (i.e., IDA’s National Conference, Dyslexia Training Institute’s Virtual Conference, etc.) or other trainings, workshops, and seminars related to the field of dyslexia and/or structured literacy in education.
AZ IDA Members are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Applications for this scholarship are first come, first served basis. The maximum award is $500 per calendar year.
Interested members must complete the application below and receive confirmation of approval before start of course.
If approved, a member of the Scholarship Committee will issue an approval email for the reimbursement. To receive reimbursement, awardees must submit proof of course completion within 45 days of the event’s end. Reimbursement will only be issued for up to $500 and for registration fees/tuition. The AZ IDA will not reimburse for meals, travel, parking, or incidentals related to the conference or training. This scholarship is awarded as a reimbursement only.
What recipients are saying about the scholarship reimbursement program:
- “The AZ IDA reimbursement scholarship is an incredible benefit of membership. I was able to virtually attend the 2019 IDA conference, which was full of powerful information. The scholarship process is clearly described and reimbursement is timely.” -Leah Dunn
