Autism Scholarship

  • The Autism Scholarship Program allows families to choose a private or alternative public service provider for a child with autism. Services received must relate to a student’s disability.
  • If a student is older than three years of age and younger than 22 and has been identified by the school district as having autism, the student is eligible for the Autism Scholarship program.
  • Students with autism are eligible to receive up to $27,000 per year in scholarship funding. All students who apply will receive funding.
  • Scholarships can be renewed every year until the student graduates from high school or turns 22 years old.

First, search for a service provider for your child. Once you have selected a provider, the provider will provide you with a scholarship application form.
