Welcome!

With this form you can donate to The Joseph T. Staley Jr. Scholarship for Awareness, Advocacy, and Intervention
Joseph was a vibrant, intelligent young man who struggled in the classroom and fell through the cracks of an over-worked education system. His parents were determined and Joseph eventually received the help he needed, educational therapy from the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD). He beat the odds, graduated high school with honors, and was accepted at Norfolk State University.

Unfortunately, Joseph suffered from an undiagnosed medical condition. Before completing his Bachelor’s degree, he passed away. Sadly, his passing was not the only tragedy. As Joseph worked for his college degree, determined but unsupported, he again fell through the cracks. Joseph’s parents and NILD want to make sure that no one else falls through the cracks of the education system.

This scholarship is geared toward families whose students struggle to learn in a traditional classroom - students who may or may not have an identified learning disability. These families generally do not have the resources to get their children help, but they are willing to fight for equal educational opportunity for their children. This scholarship lends support in the areas of awareness, advocacy, testing, and services.
