2012 THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS SCHOLARSHIP
STUDENTS WHOSE PARENT HAS A DISABILITY

Through the Looking Glass and its National Center for Parents with Disabilities and their Families are pleased to announce new scholarships specifically for high school seniors or college students who have parents with disabilities. A total of fifteen $1000 scholarships will be given out Fall 2012. These scholarships are part of Through the Looking Glass’ National Center for Parents with Disabilities and their Families. These scholarships are open to all students whose parent has any significant disability or health condition. Although no specific parental disabilities are prioritized for these scholarships, we especially encourage those students who have a parent with an intellectual disability to apply for these scholarships.

There are separate eligibility requirements for high school seniors and for college students:

1. High School Seniors. To be eligible, a student must be a high school graduate (or graduating senior) by Summer 2012, planning to attend a two-year or four-year college in Fall 2012 in pursuit of an AA, BA or BS degree, and have at least one parent with a disability.

2. College Students. To be eligible, a student must be currently enrolled in a two-year or four-year college in Fall 2012 in pursuit of an AA, BA or BS degree, be 21 years of age or younger as of March 5, 2012, and have at least one parent with a disability.

All application materials must be postmarked by March 5, 2012. Individuals may submit only one application per award period.

Selection criteria for all scholarships include academic performance, community activities and service, letter of recommendation and an essay describing the experience of growing up with a parent with a disability. Five of the fifteen scholarships will also consider financial hardship and academic potential in addition to the other selection criteria.

Please go to our website: http://www.lookingglass.org for more information, including the application form, complete application directions and an FAQ page that answers many common questions as well as offers helpful suggestions.

“Stalking: Know It. Name It. Stop It!" Jan. 18 - Jan. 30
11:00 am - 1:00 pm
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
January is National Stalking Awareness Month, a time to mobilize against a dangerous crime. This year’s theme, “Stalking: Know It. Name It. Stop It,” calls our nation to stop this crime by learning more about it. Stalking can happen to anyone, and it affects 3.4 million victims a year. It’s a crime in all 50 states. Stalkers may assault or murder their victims, and they are hard to stop. The more you know about stalking, the more you can do to fight it. The Office of Student Judicial Affairs, The University Police Department, The Department of Student Life and Residence Life and Housing have joined together in an effort to raise awareness and prevention of stalking in our community. During the month of January on various dates, there will be distributions of materials in the Student Union and The Polsky Building on Mondays and Wednesdays from 11:00 to 1:00. There will also be a movie about Stalking presented in the Student Union Theatre on January 24th at 7pm titled "Obsessed". There will be a panel discussion followed by a viewing of the movie for students to discuss the seriousness of this crime and ways to prevent them from becoming a victim.

For more information, you can visit http://stalkingawarenessmonth.org/about . If you are currently experiencing any issues related to stalking, you can contact University Police at 330-972-2911 or utilize the resources of Student Judicial Affairs http://www.uakron.edu/sja/ and University Counseling Center http://www.uakron.edu/counseling/ .
