This scholarship is established in honor of a beloved sister, Bethany Laurette Broady. Bethany has autism and downs syndrome. Despite any challenges she may face, she aspires every day to find happiness. All she knows is the brighter side of life. She leaves the constant reminder that we all can approach life in this way no matter the case. Neurodivergence is what brings this country together. This scholarship celebrates that.

Students with Autism Spectrum Disorder face a wide range of varying challenges, both in and out of the classroom.

College can be a scary and stressful endeavor for any student, but it can be particularly daunting for students with autism who may struggle to find students they can relate to and teachers who understand their learning styles. In addition to the usual challenges of college, such as the financial burden and the new social environment, these obstacles can be overwhelming.

This scholarship aims to support students with autism so they have the resources and community they need to thrive in college.

Any high school, undergraduate, or trade school student with Autism Spectrum Disorder may apply for this scholarship opportunity.
