Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation Scholarship
This unique scholarship supports students with dyslexia who plan to pursue a degree in a STEM field. Many of the awardees are not students who stand out for their overall high academic achievement, but rather for having higher grades in subjects other than English and for struggling with spelling and writing, while being engaged in more STEM-oriented subject matters. They say they are one of the few scholarships where a student’s GPA is not a consideration.

Deadline: February 28, 2022
