HOUSTON (PRWEB) May 16, 2019
Burford Perry LLP, a Houston business litigation law firm, has announced that it will offer a $1,000 scholarship to help those diagnosed with Autism pursue a higher education. The scholarship will provide tuition assistance to the winning applicant at a university, junior college, or trade school.
Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that impairs an individual’s ability to communicate and interact socially. Autism or ASD includes many other types of developmental and communicative disorders, such as Asperger Syndrome, which is probably most well known for an individual’s uncontrollable use of language. Asperger Syndrome and all types of Autism make it difficult for individuals to make eye contact, express their feelings, and handle social situations. Additionally, Autism can cause individuals to engage in repetitive behaviors, obsessive interests, or struggle to keep a conversation going. The entire legal team at Burford Perry LLP hopes that by offering this scholarship, the firm can help students with Autism overcome challenges and pursue a higher education.
Any U.S. citizen who has been diagnosed with Autism is eligible to apply for the scholarship. Applicants do not need to be attending school at the time of the application, but the scholarship must be utilized within one year of the award.
Anyone interested in applying for the scholarship can visit the firm’s website, where all important information and the application for the scholarship can be found. Applications must be submitted no later than February 10, 2020 and the winner will be notified no later than June 22, 2020.
