As always, we want to be brief, but this monthly newsletter includes a couple of very important deadlines and reminders.
1. First Round Application Deadline is Next Week
During the month of May, our team will be verifying the first round of scholarship applications – that’s 2,300 applications already!!
We will close the first round of applications April 30th and will re-open the application portal on June 1st for our second round.
We have received many messages from parents who are having their children’s testing done in May and June and this second round application period should accommodate those students.
2. Eligibility Requirements
We have simplified eligibility requirements for you. You now need to complete and upload to TADS only one of these forms:
The Medical Professional Form is signed by any licensed professional (pediatrician, occupational therapist, speech therapist, or psychologist) and will remain in good standing for three years from the date it is signed.
The Educator Eligibility Form is signed by your student's school and should be used in cases when your student is tested or has an IEP from the public school system. Your student's school will need copies of the testing/EIP paperwork before signing off.
Parents should expect to be notified of award amounts for their students before school begins.
Also, please note that ADD and ADHD as stand alone diagnoses do not qualify. Please visit our website and read this article for more information.
Thanks again for all you do! We’ll stay in touch!
