Are there college scholarships for children with Aspergers?


Answer by  patti (29325)

The Organization for Autism Research manages the annual Schwallie Family Scholarship Competition. http://www. aheadd. org/scholarship. html offers a small, annual scholarship. Your state may have special opportunities, which you can learn about through HHS. Pell Grants are part of an entitlement that is based on need, not disability, but definitely worth apply for: www.

It is very likely. Check websites like FastWeb, which are free and have a large database of potential scholarships. You may also consider heading to your local bookstore--they often have books devoted to scholarships and their specific qualifications. Or consider speaking with a college or university directly; if nothing else, it is worth including on the financial aid application.

Yes, you can get the Schwallie Family scholarship for a child with Aspergers, or others depending on the school the child goes to.

The Schwallie Family Scholarship Program awards scholarships of $3,000 that can be used for either college or vocational school (go to the Organization for Autism Research website). And AHEADD gives a $500 scholarship for college. The link is http://www. aheadd. org/scholarship. html. The federal government has Pell grants for this, too.

Yes, there are some, you may want to look into the Pell Grant foundation, which funds multiple disabilities, or simply googling the subject.


Answer by  Ginakeys (178)

Yes. The Organization for Autism Research offers the Schwallie Family Foundation Scholarship for children with Asperger Syndrome. The Autism Society of America offers another college scholarship for children with Asperger Syndrome. AHEADD offers a "book scholarship" for children with Asperger Syndrome. Additionally, there is the Ohio Department of Education Autism Scholarship Program. Others likely exist.

No there isn't. If you read the above it keeps repeating Schwallie. There are very few private scholarships available for ASD and LDs.
