OAR is excited to announce that applications are open for the Synchrony Tech Scholarship. Unlike OAR’s other scholarships, which support autistic students pursuing two- and four-year degree programs, the Synchrony Tech Scholarship supports autistic adults interested in pursuing or advancing their careers in IT-related or technical fields by obtaining a technology-related certification. Scholarship award amounts vary based on program cost but range from $500 to $5,000.

2022 scholarship recipient Jade Brown shared that “the OAR Synchrony Tech Scholarship has granted me the opportunity to grow as a cybersecurity professional and receive formal training in malware reverse engineering.” Already in the cybersecurity field, Brown acknowledged the importance of learning new skills as a means to strengthen her candidacy for specialty roles. 

Are you interested in advancing your career in the tech field or with a tech-related skill? OAR is actively accepting applications for this scholarship on a rolling basis through December 31, 2024. However, priority review dates are May 1 and October 1, 2024. Learn more about the scholarship and apply online
