Academic Scholarship Program
This program is open to children with special needs who are pursuing a post-secondary education. Understanding how difficult it is for a family to afford all that is required in the life of a child with special needs, the Robbie Foundation will award a grant of $2,000 - $5,000 to one family each year (if funding is available). This money will be applied to tuition and disbursed directly to the college or university. Application deadline is April 15th of the given academic year
