LDAA’s Mandin Award

Do you know a deserving Alberta student with learning disabilities or ADHD? Nominate them for the Mandin Award.

About the Mandin Award

The Learning Disabilities Association of Alberta (LDAA) is once again pleased to offer the Mandin Award.

The Mandin Award is up to $400 and is given to assist an Albertan between the ages of 4 to 21 years of age who is living with learning disabilities or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

The award may be used to supporting the costs of attending summer camp, social skill development courses, tutoring, and assessments. Disbursements of the funds are made directly to the program or service, or to the award recipient upon receipt of an invoice.

In making their selection, the Award Committee considers the possible benefit of the award to the applicant. Considerations include but are not limited to:

  • The complexity of the applicant’s learning disabilities and ADHD;
  • The perceived impact of the award on enhancing their applicant’s quality of life and self esteem;
  • The perceived long term benefit of the proposed service to the applicant;
  • In the absence of a clear award recipient, the Committee will also consider the economic need of applicants and the difficulty with obtaining funding from other sources.

Application forms and more information about the Mandin Award is available on the LDAA website.

Application Deadline: Tuesday, May 15, 2012. Applications will be accepted via mail or email.
