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.

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. In order to apply, the following steps are required: Complete the online application. Upload a short statement (125 words or less) setting forth your educational goals.
