The Neurodiversity Scholarship: The Neurodiversity Alliance
The scholarships is designed to assist young adults who identify as neurodivergent and plan to enroll in a college or university for the upcoming school year. We're honored to support neurodivergent young people 16-26 years olds, including those who identify with learning differences like dyslexia, ADHD, and other conditions such as autism spectrum disorder, as they pursue their academic and career goals. This initiative, courtesy of the Neurodiversity Alliance and powered by Eye to Eye, represents our ongoing commitment to helping neurodivergent students achieve their full potential while being part of a supportive community. This scholarship program is designed to break down the financial barriers to higher education, making it easier for students to go to college, focus on their studies, and graduate successfully. In addition to the funding, each scholarship recipient gets a year-long virtual mentorship from one of our Eye to Eye Alumn'eye community members.
