Are you a caregiver who is dreaming of the next step in your career that furthering your education will help you to reach? The Sean Tease Scholarship has been established at Monadnock Developmental Services to recognize and acknowledge those who choose to be caregivers by honoring a person in southwestern New Hampshire with special qualities who has demonstrated sustained drive to make a positive difference in the life of the person who he or she serves. We are intending to honor a direct support person (DSP) or home provider who works with people with disabilities.

Over the past few years we have awarded thousands of dollars scholarships to provide extended learning to a number of local caregivers. These opportunities have including earning LNA certification, tuition coverage for Registered Nurse education, creative writing courses to foster personal innovation, and American Red Cross training.

If you are considering the next step in your career that furthering your education will help you to reach, this scholarship may be useful to you. On behalf of Sean’s family and the scholarship committee composed of people who made his community-based program possible, we invite you to review the scholarship criteria and submit an application.
