Marion Huber Learning through Listening Awards

Each year, the Marion Huber Learning Through Listening (LTL) awards are presented to Learning Ally members who are high school seniors with learning disabilities, in recognition of academic excellence, outstanding leadership, and service to others.


Marion Huber made her first gift of $200 to RFB&D in 1959. By 1990, she was making gifts in the range of $20,000. Marion was particularly focused on Learning Ally's expanded mission, reaching out to students with learning disabilities. She observed the power of "Learning Through Listening" to transform lives, and it was for this reason that she endowed our award for students with dyslexia and other disabilities that prevent effective reading. By creating a permanent endowment, Marion Huber ensured that the work she valued during her lifetime continues today.

Offered since 1991, the awards are given to six students who are chosen by a selection committee. Learning Ally presents the three top winners $6,000 each and three special honors winners $2,000 each. The three top winners will be presented with their awards at an event to be announced.

To be eligible for the Marion Huber Learning through Listening Awards, you must:
- Have a specific learning disability
- Have been registered with RFB&D for at least one year prior to the closing date (individually or through a school)
- Be a member of the current award year graduating class of a public or private school or home school in the United States or its territories
- Have an overall grade average 3.0 or above, based on grades 10 through 12 (or equivalent if an alternative grading system is used)
- Plan to continue formal education beyond high school at either a two- or four-year college or vocational school
