Balaban Scholarship Application

Dr. Mae J. Balaban, an innovative member of NJIDA and NJSHA, was the driving force behind numerous teacher-training initiatives.  In 1998 recognizing the positive potential of a joint conference, Dr. Balaban formed the “Spring Conference Committee” that brought the finest researchers and clinicians to New Jersey under her leadership for 16 years.    To honor her memory, a limited number of scholarships are available to NJSHA and/or NJIDA members currently providing structured literacy instruction to individuals (preschool through adulthood) who are experiencing difficulty learning to decode and comprehend text.
