Autistic programs are often overlooked within already stretched school budgets. Here's a chance to get a needed item or service--such as software,  technical aids, soundproof pods, programs, or anything for education.

  • This grant for assistance will be given to 2 Texas programs or classrooms for the purchase of a need or service. 

  • The award will start out from $500 to $1000 each; Autism ResearchTexas (ART) hopes to increase this amount over time.

  • ART will focus on institutions with missions to further the education or independence of autistic individuals. There is an ever-growing number of autistic individuals reaching adulthood who need this support. Awards may go to any institution or school that helps educate autistics in Texas. This includes private schools or non-profit parent-teacher organizations, institutions of higher education with autism centers in place, or perhaps to help establish an autism center, or to job training institutions, or to schools or centers assisting areas with need. The award may go to any program serving any age group of autistic persons within the state of Texas. The aim of these scholarships is to eventually decrease the disparity in unemployment affecting autistic individuals.

Note: scholarships must be used in accordance with their proposals. Autism Research Texas may make the proposed purchase on behalf of the program or classroom or will require proof of purchase.

We are pleased to announce the recipient of this inaugural
school grant will go to 
HOPS (Harlandale opportunities for post-secondary school) at The Jewel Wietzel Center.


The Weitzel program purchased a Cricut machine to help them make T-shirts to promote autism awareness and understanding, and items for cooking lessons.

I am hoping they might send us a link to put here to buy their awesome T-shirts!
