HOUSTON, Texas (PRWEB) December 23, 2020
Houston dentist Dr. John Barras, and his dental practice, Dentistry by John Barras, DDS, are pleased to announce they will be offering a scholarship for those who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (autism or ASD). This is an educational scholarship in the amount of $1,000, which will be used to offset a portion of the tuition cost for attendance at a college or trade school chosen by the winning applicant. This is the third such scholarship offered by Dr. Barras since 2017 for those diagnosed with ASD.
Autism is a condition that can affect both communication and other aspects of a person’s life. Those persons often face challenges, and those challenges may affect their educational activities. The goal of Dr. Barras, the other dentists at the practice, and the entire staff is that by presenting this scholarship opportunity, an individual with autism will be provided with additional impetus to continue his or her schooling, and to move forward and achieve their educational goals.
Eligibility for the scholarship is limited to United States citizens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (DSM-V), and who anticipate enrolling at a college (or junior college) or a trade or vocational school in the near future. Although applicants do not need to be attending or enrolled at a school when they submit their application, the scholarship must be utilized within a year of the award.
All inquiries should be addressed to us, preferably by email, as follows:
