With the help of local families and businesses, the Autism MVP Foundation is making a big impact on the lives of students on the autism spectrum and the New Jersey educators trained to teach them. To date, they have raised more than $60,000. This year, because of the support of our community, the foundation is again offering scholarships to students at Monmouth University who are furthering their education as professionals in the field of autism. The foundation also continues to fund the Autism Program Improvement Project at Monmouth University.
100% of proceeds support professionals in the field of autism education. The Autism Program Improvement Project is the only known program of its kind in the country where in-school, autism-focused training is provided at no cost to a district or teachers. Proceeds also benefit the newly-formed scholarship program with Monmouth University’s Department of Education. Scholarships will be awarded to exemplary graduate students who are pursuing careers working with individuals on the autism spectrum. For more information, visit www.autismmvp.org
