Autism Delaware scholarships applications due April 15

Autism Delaware is now accepting applications for three scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year: the Autism Delaware Daniel & Lois Gray Memorial Scholarship, the Autism Delaware Adult with Autism Scholarship and the Autism Delaware Autism Teacher Certification Scholarship.

Named for long-time advocates Daniel and Lois Gray, Autism Delaware’s memorial scholarship provides financial support for students who are enrolled or accepted for matriculation at the University of Delaware and who intend to work in the field of autism in Delaware.

Autism Delaware’s scholarship for adults with autism provides financial support for eligible adults on the spectrum who are pursuing a post-secondary education, while Autism Delaware’s certification scholarship provides financial support for teachers in Delaware’s public and charter schools who wish to pursue an autism certification.

Applications for all three scholarships may be downloaded at All applications are competitive, and the number of available scholarships depends upon the amount of available funding, as well as assessment by Autism Delaware’s scholarship review committee. Typically, the scholarship amount is $1,000. To be considered, an application must be received by April 15.
