What is the Community Engagement and Education Scholarship Program?
The Scholarship Program provides financial assistance for individuals with Down syndrome (DS) to participate in extracurricular or life skill development activities. It may not be used for therapy services, daycare, family vacations, or memberships to local museums or public attractions. It is intended to offer individuals with DS an opportunity for a fun, enriching program that he/she would not get in the academic/therapy arena. Examples include, but are not limited to the following: life skills, tutoring, camps, dance classes, art classes, karate, gymnastics, and swimming lessons.
