Slingerland® Institute for Literacy


The Slingerland® Institute for Literacy offers partial scholarships for comprehensive classes.

Scholarships are only awarded for the Slingerland® Comprehensive Classes that include a practicum that provides trainees the opportunity to apply what they are learning during the class with students.

We will be awarding a limited number of partial scholarships for training the summer of 2019. Scholarship amounts to be awarded are: 1st Year Introductory - maximum of $500; 2nd Year Continuum and 3rd Year Continuum: a maximum of $750.

Please be aware that the process for submitting an application and enrolling in a Slingerland® Multisensory Structured Language Comprehensive Class is separate from and must be completed before the process of applying for a teacher training class scholarship.

To apply for a scholarship for teacher training, carefully follow the instructions set out in the Scholarship Instructions link (click here). If you have questions about the scholarship application process, you may contact the Slingerland® Institute for Literacy at 425-453-1190. Applicants chosen to receive partial scholarships will be notified by May 2, 2019—if they submitted applications by the April 2, 2019 deadline.

Application materials must be emailed or mailed via USPS to the Slingerland Institute® for Literacy. Applications received via email or postmarked by April 2, 2018 will be given first priority. Late applications are welcome and will be considered if funds remain.

Please carefully read key guidelines used in awarding all scholarships:
