The Joseph T. Staley, Jr. Scholarship for Awareness, Advocacy, and Intervention

This scholarship is geared toward families whose students struggle to learn in a traditional classroom - students who may or may not have an identified learning disability. These families generally do not have the resources to get their children help, but they are willing to fight for equal educational opportunity for their children. This scholarship lends support in the areas of awareness, advocacy, testing, and services. 

Your donation honors Joseph’s memory by working, one student at a time, to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to learn, receive help when needed, and thrive. Not only in school, but in life.  Click here to learn more or to donate.
