Teacher Scholarships

To help struggling readers in Kansas and Missouri, the IDA is offering scholarships for Orton-Gillingham and evidence-based literacy teacher training programs.

The mission of the Kansas-Missouri branch of the International Dyslexia Association is to give students with Dyslexia a better learning experience through teacher training, parent support, and student empowerment. One of the ways we do this is through our Teacher Training scholarships.

The goal of these Teacher Scholarships is to provide teachers in Kansas and Missouri access to evidence-based-literacy and Orton-Gillingham training programs.

If the Orton-Gillingham/Structured Literacy training that you are interested in is not found below, please contact us at ksmoidascholarships@gmail.com. Please allow one month for the committee to determine the eligibility of the program. Please review the Teacher Training Scholarship Guidelines document at https://ksmo.dyslexiaida.org/ for complete details. Current scholarships are available for up to $1500 per course, not to exceed the cost of the class and required materials. If you are a previous scholarship recipient, you are welcome to apply again. However, the number of applications received will determine scholarship amounts. For more information about what constitutes IDA standards for classroom teachers, please visit: https://dyslexiaida.org/knowledge-and-practices/.
