Action Required: Member 2016 Scholarship Applications Available and Accepted Through February
One benefit of Contributing Membership with The Arc of Aurora is that you are eligible to apply for the 
Glen Talladay Scholarship and Sibling Scholarship Funds. Both scholarships are designed to enhance the lives of The Arc of Aurora members and are funded by both private donations and the organization's Board of Directors via the budgeting process. Applications for both scholarships are due February 29, 2016. Each application includes procedures, requirements, applicant information, and authorization --- all of which must be complete for consideration.
Glen Talladay was a member and ward of The Arc of Aurora who passed away years ago. As The Arc of Aurora came to know Glen over its years of involvement in his life, we recognized his passion for travel and outings. Thus it was that the Glen Talladay Scholarship Fund was created in Glen's memory. The Sibling Scholarship Fund looks to recognize the special role and responsibilities of brothers and sisters of a person with intellectual or developmental disabilities.
