Description

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

The Synchrony Scholarship for Autistic Students of Color supports students attending any kind of post-secondary undergraduate institution: four-year colleges; two-year colleges; life skills or postsecondary programs; or vocational, technical, or trade schools. Applicants must belong to an underrepresented racial/ethnic minority group. 

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
  • Responses to essays - written answers, audio recording, or slideshow
  • Proof of enrollment
  • A letter of recommendation 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 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
