What types of scholarships do you offer and who are they designed for?
Autism Research Texas will primarily direct scholarships to help with
1. The higher education of persons with autism
2. Job training for persons with autism
The scholarships will be given to institutions on behalf of an individual or for the purchase of a need/service.
All scholarships will start out as $500; Autism ResearchTexas (ART) hopes to increase this amount over time.
ART will focus on scholarships to further the education or independence of individuals with autism.
These scholarships will award $500 towards post-high school education, such as a 2-year or 4-year college, or vocational school.
This scholarship is now closed for 2023. But check back January 2024.
