About the Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation

The Joseph James Morelli Legacy Foundation’s 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 hundreds of scholarships to deserving 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.  To learn more or to volunteer, please contact us. Please consider a donation today to help us continue to recognize these students and empower them to believe in themselves.   Hear some of their testimonials below:

We Need Your Support on November 3, 2023

To date we have awarded over 330 scholarships, totaling more than $550,000. Your gift is helping these young adults receive much needed tutoring, testing, accommodations, resources and tuition support, which can make the difference between success and failure. But more than the financial support, your generous support builds students’ self-esteem and confidence, as well as restores the dream of being worthy and deserving of an education.

We would like to thank Promontory Foundation for their generous matching grant donation!  Please help us reach our goal of $40,000 so that we may continue to change lives!
