The Unapologetically Embracing Autism Scholarship is a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to autism parents in need. We understand the financial burden that autism can place on families, and we want to help alleviate that burden by providing scholarships to those who need it most. We recognize that many of these parents are struggling financially, and our goal is to help them cover the costs associated with their child’s medical care, therapy, and educational needs. With the Unapologetically Embracing Autism Scholarship, we hope to make a difference in the lives of families affected by autism.
