"The special needs scholarships can be used offset the cost of camp, tutoring, classes, secondary education, post-secondary education or tools to help the students learn and flourish."
Varghese Summersett PLLC is providing scholarships for students who have been diagnosed with either Down Syndrome or Autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Two of our firm's top attorneys have children with special needs.
Christy Jack and Letty Martinez are passionate advocates for youth with disabilities. The special needs scholarships can be used offset the cost of camp, tutoring, classes, secondary education, post-secondary education or tools to help the students learn and flourish.
To qualify, the applicant (or their guardian) must show proof that they have been diagnosed with Autism or Down Syndrome.
To apply, the applicant, their friend, relative, or teacher must submit a letter or video stating how the financial aid will benefit them. (For example, a neighbor could send a video stating why a Down Syndrome child needs an adaptive bicycle, or a grandmother could write a letter on behalf of her autistic granddaughter who could benefit from an iPad or a special needs camp.)
Applicants must submit two letters of recommendation. These should be from teachers, employers, friends or community leaders. They should attest to the applicant's character, ability and need for financial aid for educational or recreational opportunities.
