The Armani Williams Autism Foundation drives autism awareness and actively creates solution-based opportunities that will provide life enrichment opportunities to people and families affected by autism spectrum disorder.
In fulfilling the foundation’s mission, Armani speaks nationally about autism to raise awareness and drive action for the development of research and resources for the autistic community. Among the many difficulties facing those on the spectrum, Armani is passionate specifically about bringing attention to employment issues and education among those with autism and the hurdles along the way.
Autism Achievement Scholarship
The Autism Achievement Scholarship is a comprehensive scholarship program that helps students diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. These $1500 scholarships have been established for current graduating high school seniors pursing a post-secondary education from an accredited institution. Students pursuing fine arts are also eligible to apply. Applicants must submit a two-page personal statement, proof of ASD diagnosis, three letters of recommendation, and proof of admittance.

AN INCLUSIVE SPECTRUM
Currently, one in 68 children born in the United States are on the autism spectrum, which has increased from one in 115 in 2000. That means that more than 15 million families in the US are affected by autism. Armani’s message is we share this world and we need to work together to bring about better life outcomes for our community.
Only 1 percent of the national health budget is dedicated to autism-related causes, and with the overall health budget expected to shrink by 25 percent in 2018, that does not leave a lot of resources for this vital issue.
