Welcome to Autism Family Services of NJ
- 2018 Autism Family Services of New Jersey Scholarship ProgramThe 2018 Autism Family Services of New Jersey Scholarship Program is open to New Jersey residents with a diagnosis of Autism. This year, Autism Family Services of New Jersey will be selecting one recipient to receive a $1,000 scholarship. To be eligible, candidates must be a New Jersey resident, graduating high school in 2018, 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 2018 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.
We encourage you to distribute this application to qualified high school seniors who may benefit. Should you have any questions, you may contact Melanie McGackin at 1-800-372-6510 for further assistance. Scholarship applications and other documents should be received by Autism Family Services of New Jersey no later than May 1, 2018.
