Dyslexia/ Auditory Processing Disorder Scholarship

For eight straight years, Gemm Learning has provided an undergraduate scholarship to students with dyslexia and/or auditory processing disorder, attending college/university in the US/Canada.

It takes persistence and character to overcome the challenges presented by dyslexia and/or auditory processing disorder and get into college.  And so, the Gemm Leaning "Dyslexia/ APD" scholarship rewards that persistence.  They have been providing a $1,000 scholarship since 2013.

The application process in simple.  Send them your story in the form of an essay on the topic "Living with Dyslexia" or "Living with Auditory Processing Disorder".  Your essay should be educational and/or inspirational, giving us all a unique insight into what it's like to live with a learning struggle.

In addition to the $1,000 scholarship, the winning student's essay will be featured on Gemm Learning's blog.
