OSWEGO COUNTY – The Oswego County Autism Task Force will once again be offering scholarship dollars to graduating seniors in Oswego County.
The task force is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to enhance the lives of those touched by Autism Spectrum Disorders in Oswego County.
“Supporting local high school students with scholarships is a way for our task force to continue helping students and families who have been touched by Autism,” said OCATF President, Tammy Thompson.
Any graduating senior with a current diagnosis of Autism Spectrum disorder planning post-secondary education or vocational school next fall would be eligible to apply.
The scholarship award of $6,000 will go to a single student or several students of Oswego County’s nine public high schools based on the following criteria:
- Our application must be completed by the student
- The recipient must be accepted to a post-secondaray or vocational school.
- The recipient must be currently diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.
- Applications must be received by the OCATF by May 6 for final review and selection by our committee.
Our final selection of the student to be awarded will be announced to the school by May 25.
