Announcing IARP Student Scholarship Fund

December 1, 2015

I am are writing to you on behalf of the newly established IARP Illinois Student Scholarship fund.  We hope to raise funds to assist Master’s Level rehabilitation students to attend future networking and educational seminars. Students in need will be able to apply for transportation, lodging, or other expenses.  As the scholarship advances, we hope to assist students in need with books, tuition, and other educational related expenses.

To help in our fundraising effort, we are seeking sponsors for our upcoming event scheduled on Thursday, April 21, 2016, at Pinstripes in Oakbrook, Illinois. We would appreciate any amount of monetary donations and/or items such as sports tickets, restaurant cards or merchandise that can be raffled individually in a silent auction or utilized to make gift baskets.  As a sponsor, your company will be highlighted at Pinstripes in the attendee materials, at our annual seminar on September 15, 2016 as well as the IARP-Illinois web page.

We have established five levels of sponsorship:

Platinum                      $1,000

Gold                            $  750

Silver                           $  500

Bronze                         $  250
