Glen T. Yoshimoto Memorial Scholarship

The International Dyslexia Association, New Hampshire Branch (NHIDA) will award the inaugural Glen T. Yoshimoto Memorial Scholarship to two special education teachers dedicated to improving the lives of children with dyslexia.

The Glen T. Yoshimoto Scholarship was established in 2017 by NHIDA with a generous gift from Ron Yoshimoto in honor of his brother, Glen. Glen struggled all his life with undiagnosed dyslexia, leading to frustration and difficulty in school, limited life choices, and hardship. Glen passed away on January 12, 2018.

Ron’s tireless dedication to educating people worldwide about effective, structured and multisensory literacy instruction for dyslexic learners has been inspired by Glen’s experiences. In memory of Glen T. Yoshimoto, NHIDA is honored to award this 2018 scholarship to two special education teachers to attend our Annual Fall Conference. Our goal is that the scholarship recipients will share materials and information from the conference with colleagues in order to advance the understanding of dyslexia and the importance of appropriate instruction for students with dyslexia.

The scholarship awards will cover the registration cost of NHIDA’s Annual Fall Conference, featuring Ron Yoshimoto presenting “It’s All Greek to Me:” Morphology for the Primary Grades, held at two locations: in Fairlee, VT on September 19, 2018 and in Manchester, NH on September 21, 2018.

Interested special education teachers are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is August 1, 2018. Scholarship recipients will be notified by August 27, 2018.

  • One scholarship will be awarded to cover the registration cost of the NH conference.
  • One scholarship will be awarded to cover the registration cost of the VT conference.
  • Note: We encourage applicants to register early for the Conference to ensure reserving a spot, as we anticipate that registration will close before the scholarship application deadline.
  • The scholarship award will reimburse the cost of registration to the recipient upon confirmation of attendance.
