Description:
EverSpark Interactive is proud to launch our Autism Awareness Scholarship. We know firsthand the difficulties autism can be. Two of our staff members, including our CEO, have experienced the devastating effects autism can have on a person and their family.

We understand the challenges autism presents to students affected by it, and know how difficult it can be to consider going to college. With the EverSpark Interactive Autism Awareness Scholarship, we aim to encourage students to pursue their secondary education. In addition, we hope to make it easier on families who want to send their autistic student to college.

We also want to raise awareness for autism by encouraging students to study related fields in college. Together, we can reduce and even eliminate the effects of autism, and we want to help students who wish to pursue a career doing just that. We know that studying such an intense subject is difficult, so we hope the $1,000 scholarship will help students succeed in a real and tangible way.
