Thanks to the generous donations of members in our community we were able to reward 7 scholarships to students with autism for college in 2015. This was part of our Spring 2015 Making a Difference for Autism Scholarship Program which is ran through KFM Making a Difference, a non-profit that focuses on helping the special needs community. The students who were awarded scholarships were Chantel Tavares (from Orlando, FL), Jacob Schweppe (from Kewanee, IL), Brandon Lang (from Redwood City, CA) Rachel Barcellona (Palm Harbor, FL), Christopher Hoskins (Beavercreek, OH), Michael Kirouac (Burlington, Ontario), and Christopher Oh (North Palm Beach, FL). The Fall 2015 winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 6, 2016. Since 2011 we’ve awarded 20 scholarships for students with autism to attend college. You can learn more about applying for our scholarship program for 2016 here.
