Description

Welcome! Below is the application for OAR's 2024 Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship Program. (If you are looking for the Schwallie Family Scholarship or the Synchrony Scholarship for Autistic Students of Color, please go back to the main application page.)

The Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship supports students attending two-year undergraduate colleges; life skills or post-secondary programs; or vocational, technical, or trade schools. Hussman applicants typically make up the pool of talented students who face daily challenges related to autism and attend programs that assist in skill building, job readiness, and other transition-related skills.

You do not need to complete this application all in one sitting. You may save the application as a draft until it is complete and then submit it when you are done. The application includes: 

  • Basic demographic information
  • Written responses to essays
  • Proof of enrollment
  • Two letters of recommendation - one from a parent/guardian and one from a non-relative

Note: You do not need to include proof of diagnosis with the application. OAR will only require proof of diagnosis from applicants identified as finalists. However, each applicant should review the Proof of Diagnosis Checklist on OAR’s website before applying to ensure that they will have the required documentation if chosen as a finalist. Proof of diagnosis is based on diagnostic criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), either DSM-IV or DSM-V.

Scholarship applications will be accepted through Monday, April 22, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. ET. 

For more information on any of these scholarships, please refer to our Scholarships page or our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. If you have further questions, please contact scholarship@researchautism.org or call (571) 977-5393.
