Advocacy, Education, Support and Scholarships for Children With Special Needs in Our Community.


PAUSE4kids provides scholarship or grant funding for programs or services for children with special needs. The Board of Directors reviews applications submitted by individual parents on behalf of their child. Due to limited funding, the maximum scholarship we can provide is $500 per child per year. Detailed Scholarship Guidelines are below, and are also linked at the bottom of the page. To be considered for a scholarship, the family must live within the area served by Ventura County SELPA. Parents who have limited financial resources or compelling special circumstances will receive priority. We currently have a limited number of scholarships available for 2011. To apply for a scholarship, please fill out our application(see link at bottom of page)and return to us at or mail to us at:
