HOPE PROGRAM SCHOLARSHIPS: Beaumont's Hope program is very pleased to announce that they have scholarship funds available for families that are interested in attending or repeating their 12 week GIFT of Hope Program. If you are interested, please contact Jamie McGillivary at 248-691-8104 ASAP as these funds typically go fast!

PROJECT iAm's GOAL: Project iAm's main goal is to provide scholarship opportunities to children living within the autism spectrum to our Toledo Area Families. As funds become available, we hope to distribute finances to families no matter how big or small the amount may be. Please feel free to fill out our scholarship applications for our committee to review, but note that we will post application deadline dates for each cycle of funding. We hope we can continue to help children receive the treatment they need to fight this prominent disorder.

CRITERIA: Project iAm prides itself on distributing funds to families, no matter what their choice of treatment or economic status may be. Project iAm does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, or any other preferences. Please note that because it is our local community that supports us, we aim to redistribute our funding throughout it. Although there are no lines that are necessarily drawn, please take that into consideration before submitting an application. As our scholarship committee begins their long process of choosing which children receive funding, several factors come into play, including, but not limited to the following:

  • your child's story and your families struggles with this disorder
  • financial need
  • volunteer work and time contribution to Project iAm
  • physical relation to the Toledo area
  • types and places of treatment: Please note, that Project iAm tries to grant funding to ALL types of therapy. Our decisions are partly based on the number of applicants from one type or place of therapy versus another.

Feel free to fill out an application by its deadline and mail to:

  • Project iAm
  • ATTN: Scholarship Committee
  • 3818 Frampton
  • Toledo, Ohio 43614

FAXED APPLICATIONS OR EMAILED APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED UNLESS PREVIOUSLY AUTHORIZED IN WRITING BY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
