The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance for individuals with Down syndrome (DS) to participate in extracurricular or life skill development activities. It may not be used for therapy services, daycare, family vacations, or memberships to local museums or public attractions. It is intended to offer an individual with DS an opportunity for a fun, enriching program that he/she would not get in the academic/therapy arena. Examples include, but are not limited to, the following: camps, tutoring, dance classes, art classes, karate, gymnastics, life preparatory skills training, swimming lessons. New in 2020, the scholarship program will cover IEP advocacy support up to $140 per child (additional information is available in the Application).
