What an AMAZING opportunity! When I was first getting into college, one thing I was always disappointed in was the lack of scholarship opportunities out their for learning disabled individuals. It was amazing however when I heard this year that National Autism Resources were coming out with 2 scholarship opportunities for our autism community! 1 scholarship will be going to an autistic individual pursuing a college education and the other will be going to some pursuing a college education in the autism field. Each scholarship is worth $500 dollars and can be used to play for classes, textbooks, or tuition.
To learn more about the scholarship opportunities please check out the requirements and application here. The deadline for autistic individuals to get there application in is Monday, September 24th @ 5 pm EST and the deadline for those pursuing an autism education is Dec 17, 2012. Please refer to their website for all inquiries! Thanks everyone!
