LDAO Scholarships & Bursaries
Roy Cooper Memorial Scholarship: LDAO offers an annual $1,000 scholarship award in memory of Roy V. Cooper, whose volunteerism within his own chapter community and the LDAO is recognized. The scholarship recognizes an Ontario high school student who has a documented Learning Disability and/or ADHD who will be attending a postsecondary institution in the upcoming school year. The student must be pursuing a bachelor of engineering or a bachelor of science in a physical sciences discipline (please note: physical sciences do not include social sciences or technology majors). Candidates must have been full time high school students during the 2013-2014 school year and be entering their first year of college or university in 2014-2015.
Applications are to be received by local LDA chapters who will recommend one candidate from their area each year to be placed in the provincial competition. Information on applying for the 2014-2015 scholarship will be posted on the LDAO website in April 2014.
