The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) is requesting applications for its Autistic Scholars Fellowship, which provides four to six autistic college students with $5,000 tuition scholarships. The scholarships promote leadership opportunities, and help the students create systemic change on their college campuses. Students eligible for the fellowship must establish or participate in a leadership role within a disability rights student organization, work to promote Autistic culture and community, and take steps to improve disability accessibility and inclusion on their campuses. Applicants for the scholarship must be autistic individuals who are willing to publicly identify as autistic. They must also have a strong interest in disability rights advocacy and activism. Scholarship applications for the January 2018 scholarship period are due on Sunday, November 19.
