The Law Offices of David A. Black, a criminal defense firm located in Phoenix, Arizona, is pleased to announce that it will be awarding a $1,000 educational scholarship to assist those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The scholarship will be in the form of tuition assistance for the winner, who will be studying at college or at a vocational school. This is the latest in a series of educational scholarships that have been awarded by the firm over the past 5 years.
Autism Spectrum Disorder, also referred to as ASD or simply autism, can result in serious challenges in the areas of communication and social skills. Many people are not aware that those challenges continue after early childhood. ASD also includes a range of conditions such as Asperger syndrome and pervasive development disorder, all of which are now included within the definition of ASD. Needless to say, ASD often presents significant challenges in the area of education.
The attorneys and staff at the law firm are hopeful that the scholarship offer will encourage those who have been diagnosed with autism to continue their studies and further their education at the college (or university or junior college), or at the vocational or trade school, of their choice.
The application is open to U.S. citizens who have been diagnosed with ASD. The winning applicant must utilize the tuition funds within 1 year from the date the scholarship award is announced.
For anyone who may be interested in applying, or in learning more about the firm’s scholarship program, a visit to the firm’s website will be instructive. It includes the application, additional information including eligibility, deadlines, and more. Applications must be submitted no later than March 11, 2022. The winner will be announced on or before March 25, 2022.
