The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization and our mission is to honor Joseph’s spirit. Through the awarding of scholarships, we recognize students, who like Joseph struggle with dyslexia, and empower them to believe in themselves. The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation supports high school and college students with dyslexia who wish to pursue a degree in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) field.
The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation supports young adults with learning differences by awarding scholarships toward obtaining a degree in a STEM field. The financial support that we provide may be used towards tuition, books, testing, tutoring, assistive technology, or any other resource that students require to obtain accommodations and navigate an often highly stressful and challenging learning environment. In addition to financial support, our scholarship awardees tell us that the scholarship offers recognition, provides confidence, and validates their struggles; emotionally, socially and academically.
Since 2014, we have awarded over $320,000 in scholarships to more than 130 high school and college students. We are only one of a few scholarships in the country that help learning challenged young adults. We value the opportunity the scholarship provides to recognize these students and are commend them on their determination and perseverance.
How can you participate? If you are a high school and or college student with a learning challenge like dyslexia and are pursuing a career in STEM, we invite you to apply for one of our scholarships.
