Thanks to the generosity of the Burton family, the PGO has been able to offer scholarships since 2018 to therapists, nurses, and others who want to pursue education towards assisting people with Parkinson’s. The scholarship helps support the education of people interested in helping families with Parkinson’s disease. Whether it be training for LSVT Loud or a Rock Steady Boxing certification, we’re committed to helping people who want to help those with PD.


  • Scholarships are accepted on an ongoing basis.

  • Funding amount is determined by a case-by-case basis.

  • Only one training request is allowed per application.

  • All supporting documents must be received at the time the application form is submitted. Incomplete applications will not be considered.

  • Submitted applications will be evaluated by our Board of Directors at their next monthly meeting. Recipients will be notified via email of the board’s decision within a month of the meeting.
