TACA Scholarships

Since 2006, TACA has provided medical scholarships to families living with autism. These scholarships help families pay for physician-prescribed services, and include stop gap medical treatments, independent assessments, and other necessary crisis funding. We continue to work hard to find scholarship opportunities that will help eligible families speed up the cycle time from the autism diagnosis to effective treatments.

TACA can only fund scholarships to eligible families living in the United States.

Before applying for a TACA scholarship, please read our “Try Before You Apply” information page.
