Gemm Learning’s Dyslexia Scholarship

Compete for our Living With Dyslexia Scholarship

Gemm Learning is renewing its scholarship program for 2016 for students with dyslexia either planning to attend or already attending college.

The application process is simple. Send us your story in the form of an essay on the topic: “What it has been like to live with dyslexia.” In addition to the $1,000 scholarship, the winning student’s essay will be featured on our blog.

Making college is challenging enough.  Making college while dealing with dyslexia represents a real achievement.  These essays are at the same time inspirational and educational, giving us all a unique insight into what it’s like to live with dyslexia.  It takes persistence and character to overcome the headwinds presented by dyslexia and get to college.

The Gemm Learning scholarship program rewards that persistence.  We have been providing a $1,000 scholarship twice a year since 2013.
