The COVID-19 Pandemic has created significant disruptions to the college and life plans of young adults with learning and attention issues all across the country. Students are changing their college plans, reducing credit loads, losing out on internship and job opportunities, and dealing with the consequences of a global pandemic. NCLD recognizes the hardship our young adults are facing and have put together a new scholarship intended to support those students whose college and life plans have been significantly impacted by COVID-19.

NCLD will award twelve $1,500 scholarships to those students who experienced significant disruptions in their college plans due to COVID-19. Eligible students will need to complete an application at this link. Finalists will be asked to complete a short 20 minute interview before decisions are made.

The application has closed, please check back in January 2022 for details
