Schwallie Family Scholarship
Welcome! Below is the application for OAR's 2021 Schwallie Family Scholarship Program.
You may only apply to one OAR scholarship – either the Schwallie Family Scholarship, or the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship. Read below for guidance on which scholarship application is most appropriate for you. For more information on both of these programs, please refer to our Scholarships page or our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. If you have further questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call (703) 243-3466.
The Schwallie Family Scholarship supports students attending two- or four-year universities. The majority of Schwallie applicants attend or plan to attend four-year universities. Many applicants with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome choose to apply for this program.
The Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship supports students attending two-year universities; life skills or post-secondary programs; or vocational, technical, or trade schools. Hussman applicants typically make up the pool of talented students who face daily challenges related to autism and attend programs that assist in skill building, job readiness, and other transition-related skills.
Applicants for the Rotary Club of Hillsborough/Hillsborough UNICO OAR New Jersey Scholarship should complete the application for the Schwallie Family Scholarship and list their Hillsborough, NJ address. The awards for the OAR New Jersey Scholarship are $1,000 each.
You do not need to complete this application all in one sitting. You may save the application as a draft until it is complete and then submit it when you are done.
Note: You do not need to include proof of diagnosis with the application. OAR will only require proof of diagnosis from applicants identified as finalists. However, each applicant should review the Proof of Diagnosis Checklist on OAR’s website before applying to ensure that they will have the required documentation if chosen as a finalist. Proof of diagnosis is based on diagnostic criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), either DSM-IV or DSM-V.
Scholarship applications will be accepted through Monday, May 3 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
