Scholarships to Attend the Conference

A limited number of scholarships are available each year to help teachers or persons with disabilities and/or their family members attend the LDA Conference.  See directions for applying for a scholarship below.  


What scholarships are available?

For educators: Half price scholarships for educators are funded by a grant to LDA from the Lilly Endowment, Inc.   If their school does not pay their registration fee, teachers and administrators may be eligible to attend for the reduced fee of $65.00, which includes the luncheon and continental breakfast.


For individuals with disabilities or their family members:  Parents of children with LD, ADHD, or other disabilities can attend the conference for free!   A Governor’s Grant for People with Disabilities makes it possible for persons with disabilities and/or their family members to attend the conference free of charge.
