Gemm Learning has just released the details about their new dyslexia scholarship competition. A $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to two different students, one for the spring semester and another for the fall semester of 2013. Enrolled college students who have struggled with dyslexia are eligible to compete for the $1,000 Overcoming Dyslexia Scholarship, which will be applied directly to each winner’s tuition.
The competition involves writing a 300-500 word essay addressing the topic “How I Overcame My Struggle with Dyslexia.” Applicants must also submit proof of college enrollment. Submissions can be sent in PDF or Microsoft Word Format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the spring semester scholarship is 3pm Eastern Time on October 31st, 2012, and the winner will be announced on November 15th, 2012. The fall semester scholarship deadline is 3pm Eastern Time on June 30th, 2013, and the winner will be announced on July 15th of 2013.
Gemm Learning expects to receive a variety of inspiring personal success stories from the applicants. “Every day we see the dramatic changes that are possible in learning, as brain plasticity provides the opportunity to achieve reading success at any age,” says Geoff Nixon, the founder of Gemm Learning.
Gemm Learning initiated the Overcoming Dyslexia scholarship as a way to encourage dyslexic students to experience the academic and personal growth that a college education can foster. Once dyslexic children confront their reading difficulties, they have the potential to become successful in school in grades K-12 and beyond.
