Ethan Saylor Memorial Scholarship
Ethan Saylor lived his life to the fullest. Whether it was rocking out to music, working with law enforcement or playing the guitar, when Ethan wanted to do something, nothing stopped him. Each year at the Buddy Walk® on Washington, NDSS awards a $500 scholarship to an individual who embodies the same energy that Ethan embodied. The scholarship is designed to give individuals with Down syndrome a means to pursue their own passions, regardless of any perceived limitations. This award will be given to an individual who displays the same drive and determination to pursue their dreams.
Each applicant must:
- Have Down syndrome
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Intend to pursue a passion
To apply, in 500 words or less, tell us about your passions, dreams and how you would use the Ethan Saylor Memorial Scholarship to make your dreams a reality. In the application, please be sure to include your name, address, age, phone number and e-mail address. Self-advocates may apply for themselves or have someone else complete the application.
The deadline for applications has been extended to February 1, 2017. Please submit applications by e-mail to Kandi Pickard at email@example.com. The scholarship will be awarded during the Buddy Walk® on Washington on April 4-5, 2017.
