The Boon Donor-Funded Scholarship Program reduces – and even eliminates – the tuition expense for teacher training in structured language, so teachers can effectively teach students how to read. Our scholarships can range from $50 to $5000. Scholarship funding spearheads Boon’s essential solution to end our nation’s reading crisis. Boon scholarships provide training in structured language instruction methods backed up by the science of reading. Our trainers are best-in-class, independent organizations that offer remote and in-person instruction through nationwide networks.  Click here to donate now.
