Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship

Description

The Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship supports students attending two-year universities, life skills or postsecondary 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. In the case of applicants for the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship whose written communications skills may be more limited, we require two letters of recommendation. The first letter of recommendation must come from a teacher, counselor, coach, or other non-relative. The second letter must come from a parent or guardian in the form of a personal letter of support. Applicants do not need to include proof of diagnosis with the application. OAR will only require proof of diagnosis from applicants identified as finalists. Please visit the scholarship's website for more information.
