The AAFSW “Twice Exceptional” Merit Scholarship for High School Seniors, Gap Year, and College Students

Current high school seniors, gap year, college freshmen, and college sophomores with a current IEP, a 504, or equivalent program are eligible for this scholarship.

In 2018 AAFSW introduced the “Twice Exceptional” Merit Scholarship for AAFSW member students with special needs. This scholarship is designed to reward Academic Excellence for high school seniors and/or college students who have shown resilience and have academically overcome adversity due to special needs. The AAFSW Merit Scholarship is meant for high school seniors and/or college students who already have an Individualized Education Program (IEP). a 504, or an equivalent program in place. In 2020, AAFSW plans to grant two “Twice Exceptional” Merit Scholarships to students whose families are current AAFSW members. Each “Twice Exceptional” Merit Scholarship carries a $2,500 monetary award.</span>
