Outside Scholarships

Ashland University intends to give students who receive an outside scholarship the maximum benefit possible. Students are required to report to the Financial Aid Office, in writing, the name of the scholarship and the amount awarded for each academic year as soon as the student becomes aware of his/her eligibility for the outside award. The outside grant or scholarship will be added to the other aid the student is entitled to, as long as total financial aid does not exceed a student’s need or cost of attendance.

Your outside scholarship search for the following academic year should start in the fall. Some helpful websites for national scholarship searches are www.finaid.org, www.fastweb.com and www.collegeboard.com. You should also check with your hometown’s Chamber of Commerce, Education Foundations, City Hall or even with your high school’s guidance counselor to learn about local sources of funding. Below is a list of outside scholarship sources that have been sent to Ashland University to disseminate to our students.

OAR is now accepting applications for the 2015 Scholarship Program. The online application can be found here: https://app.wizehive.com/apps/oarscholarship2015. The application will close on May 1, 2015.

Background:  In 2008, the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) introduced the Schwallie Family Scholarship Program to support the post-secondary, undergraduate education of qualified individuals with an autism spectrum diagnosis. As of December 1, 2014, OAR has awarded a total of $476,500 to 156 students from across the country through this program. Supported initially through gifts from the family of OAR Board member, Ed Schwallie, the scholarship fund has also received generous support from the Lisa Higgins Hussman Foundation in each of the last five years.

In 2013, OAR announced an expansion of the scholarship program to benefit students with more severe autism diagnoses by establishing the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship Program. OAR Board member and Scholarship Committee chairwoman, Lisa Hussman, championed the initiative, which is supported through a generous gift from the Lisa Higgins Hussman Foundation. For these awards, eligible students may be attending any of the types of institutions that fall under the Schwallie Family Scholarship Program criteria, as well as one of the growing number of certificate and life skills / transition programs.

2015 Scholarship Program:  OAR's scholarship program provides non-renewable $3,000 scholarships to students across the autism spectrum. OAR is pleased to invite applications from persons with an autism diagnosis (DSM-IV or later criteria) pursuing full-time, post-secondary, undergraduate education or vocational-technical training in any of the following:

  • Four-year undergraduate college or university
  • Two-year undergraduate college
  • Trade, technical or vocational school
  • Cooperative life skills programs

Applicants must choose between one of the following options:

  • The Schwallie Family Scholarship for higher-functioning students
  • The Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship to support students with more severe autism diagnoses

Eligibility: Any individual with an established autism diagnosis and who will be attending an accredited institution of higher education in the United States for the Fall 2014 / Spring 2015 semesters is eligible to apply. Eligible individuals need to be enrolled on a full-time basis or be working toward certification or accreditation in a particular field (e.g., studying to be a paralegal, chef, etc.). Past recipients of a Schwallie Family Scholarship or immediate family members of any person serving on OAR’s Board of Directors or Scientific Council are not eligible to apply.

Proof of Diagnosis:  Due to the sensitive nature of medical information and the volume of applications OAR receives, the application process assumes the applicant has an autism diagnosis.  Once OAR identifies finalists, it requires each one to submit copies of the medical documentation that established the diagnosis.  This is not part of the application process.  Before applying, however, each applicant should review the proof of diagnosis criteria.

**Based on recent changes in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) criteria for autism spectrum diagnoses, OAR will be asking all scholarship finalists to verify that they meet criteria for either a DSM-IV or DSM-V diagnosis.

Application:  OAR exclusively uses an online application system.  Using a drop down box, applicants will select either the Schwallie Family Scholarship (for higher functioning students) or the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship (more severe diagnosis students).  Students are expected to complete the applications on their own.  In the case of applicants for the Lisa Higgins Hussman Scholarship whose written communications skills may be more limited, OAR will allow a parent or guardian to provide a personal letter in addition to the required letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, coach, or other non-relative. 

Review: The Scholarship Review Committee is comprised of members of OAR's Board of Directors, and augmented by selected parents of children with autism and self-advocates. Each complete application is reviewed.  Incomplete submissions are disqualified.

The review proceeds in two phases: (1) Initial Review and (2) Final Review.  Approximately 10 percent of applicants advance to the Final Review.  From there, the Scholarship Review Committee identifies intended scholarship recipients and a ranked list of alternates should a primary candidate subsequently not qualify for any reason. 

Reviewers base their evaluation and recommendations on the personal story as conveyed by the essay’s original content: challenges that have been overcome, future aspirations, the importance of the chosen field of study, and how the scholarship will help achieve academic, career, and personal goals.

California Spirit of Distinction Scholarship: Starting in 2012, OAR partnered with an anonymous donor that wished to provide two $500 scholarships to young women attending schools in the California State University system. All applicable candidates for the Schwallie Family Scholarship will be considered for a California Spirit of Distinction Scholarship.

Note to Applicants, Parents, and Counselors:

This is a highly competitive program.  Last year, OAR received nearly 500 applications competing for 40 available scholarships. OAR encourages any interested person to apply. At the same time, we caution anyone submitting an application against incorporating this scholarship into any financial plans for post-secondary education until notified of selection.

If you are unable to find what you are searching for or have additional questions, please contact Wendy McKinnon, programs and outreach associate, at scholarship@researchautism.org or 703-243-3466.
