Description

RJT Criminal Defense is pleased to be offering a $1,000 educational scholarship for people who have been diagnosed with autism (now known as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)). The scholarship will be used to offset a portion of the tuition at an educational institution chosen by the successful applicant. The aim of the program is to encourage those with autism to continue their education. This is a $1,000 scholarship consisting of tuition assistance at a trade or vocational school, or a college, junior college or university. The scholarship funds will be paid directly to the educational institution selected by the successful applicant. The scholarship money must be used within 1 year after the date of the award. It is not required that an applicant be enrolled in school at the time the application is submitted. The application is open to any United States citizen who has been diagnosed with ASD who wishes to continue his or her education at a trade school, vocational school, or on the college or junior college level. Complete the online application and upload a short statement (125 words or less) setting forth your educational goals. (Optional) Upload an essay (800 words or less) discussing the impact autism has had on your education. We may also require that you provide us with proof of your diagnosis. All application materials must be completed and submitted to us no later than February 5, 2018. The winner will be selected by Ryan J. Tegnelia of RJT Criminal Defense, in his sole discretion. Mr. Tegnelia will announce the winner of the scholarship on or before March 5, 2018.
