Great Minds Don't Think Alike® Grants And Scholarship Fund

The IDALA is proud to sustain a grants and scholarship fund to promote the use of effective academic and/or intervention programs in schools and to raise awareness and understanding of Dyslexia in school, home, clinic, and community settings.  The fund provides full scholarships for teachers to attend our annual Language and Learning Conference, as well as partial scholarships for structured literacy teacher training workshops held in our area.  The fund also provides grants up to $7,500 per school year to schools and districts.

For more information about the Great Minds Don't Think Alike® grant program, please visit our Grants page.



Please consider donating to our Scholarship Fund to support teachers and schools in their efforts to better understand and teach students with Dyslexia. Your contribution of any amount is greatly appreciated.  All donations are fully tax-deductible.

100% of the proceeds are applied to scholarship awards.
