This is a one-time scholarship in the amount of $1,000. It will be applied to offset the cost of tuition at a college, university, junior college, trade or vocational school, or community college. You do not have to be currently enrolled in the educational institution in order to apply for the scholarship. The winner will have one year from the date of the award in which to provide us with the name of the school you will be attending. The check for $1,000 will be issued directly to that school on the winner's behalf. Anyone who has been diagnosed with ASD (DSM-V) and is interested in furthering their educational goals is invited to apply for the scholarship. We reserve the right to request proof of the diagnosis. The application process requires the one complete the online application form, upload a brief statement (100 words or less) telling us how the money will be used for your educational plans if you are awarded the scholarship, and (optional) upload an essay (1,000 words or less) on the impact ASD has had on your education.
