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 2012-2013 school year and be entering their first year of college or university in 2013-2014.
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. To apply for the Roy Cooper Scholarship, please contact any of the LDAO’s local chapters. Deadline for submission for the 2012 competition is June 17, 2013 to your chapters. LDAO will accept recommended applications from chapters up until July 2, 2013.
