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 life skills, tutoring, camps, dance classes, art classes, karate, gymnastics, and swimming lessons. Update for 2019 – All applications must be in by July 31, 2019. Funds will not be available after July 31, 2019 for 2019.
