Scholarships are available and handled in a confidential manner. A committee appointed by The Reading Group Board of Directors determines scholarship eligibility. Scholarships are awarded on the basis of financial need and severity of the student’s learning disability. It is not unusual for students with learning difficulties to exhibit special strengths such as creativity, imagination, artistic and/or mechanical abilities. All of these factors are taken into consideration when determining eligibility for a scholarship. A written recommendation from a teacher, physician, pastor, or local sponsoring agency is required. Full and partial scholarships are awarded. Please note that all scholarships must be awarded locally, with all instruction occurring in the southwest Champaign Reading Group facility. Scholarships may be awarded to both children and adults. Please phone our offices with any questions regarding scholarship applications.
Full information on providing scholarships is available directly from the Reading Group office. All contributions to the scholarship fund are tax-deductible.
To apply for a scholarship, please print and complete the Parent Packet – Scholarship Application and submit Teacher Packet – Scholarship Recommendation from two teachers. Please return all forms by mail or in person to The Reading Group, 3011-A Village Office Place, Champaign, IL 61822. If you have questions about the forms, please call 217-351-9144.
