Square Pegs MSL Scholarships
In 2017, the Square Pegs Board committed to raising up to $50,000 to support Tasmanian educators, parents and other relevant professionals to further their knowledge in supporting dyslexic learners, through completion of appropriate multisensory language education training.
Applications for a first round of scholarships closed in December 2017. The number of high quality applications exceeded our expectations. We were thrilled to have been able to offer $16,500 to fund places for seven exceptional candidates from across the State to complete the IMSLE course in February 2018.
Applications are open to: teachers, teacher aides, tutors, speech pathologists, parents or other relevant professionals involved in providing support for children with dyslexia or related learning differences. Please read the terms and conditions before applying.
