2017 Autism Scholarship Program

(800) 372-6510

The 2017 Autism Family Services of New Jersey Scholarship Program is open to New Jersey residents with a diagnosis of Autism. This year, in partnership with the Hinkle, Fingles, Prior and Fischer, Attorneys at Law, Autism Family Services of New Jersey will be selecting two recipients; each receiving a $1,000 scholarship. To be eligible, candidates must be a New Jersey resident, graduating high school in 2017, have an established diagnosis of Autism, Asperger Syndrome, or PDD-NOS and plan on pursuing a post- secondary education.

This scholarship is unique since it allows 2017 graduates pursuing a college, university, technical, trade, or vocational school level education to apply. This scholarship is not solely based on academic achievement. Meaningful community volunteerism, participation in extra-curricular activities and essay response will all be considered when choosing recipients for these scholarships. Candidates do not need to be near the top of their class to be considered. All who are eligible are encouraged to apply.
