Are you a high school student who will be graduating this year, or a current college student who will be enrolled for the Fall 2024 semester?
Please submit a brief statement about yourself and what you will do with the autism scholarship. Then, we want you to design a pair of socks!
You can download a sock template here or you can submit your own design.
Applications will be accepted up to March 15, 2024.
The winner of the 2024 Autism Scholarship will receive a $5,000 grant and John’s Crazy Socks will create their original sock design to sell in our online store! The winner will also receive a box of their own designed socks.
A first runner-up will receive a $2,500 scholarship and a second runner-up will receive a $1,000 scholarship. All winners must use their scholarships toward their education.
Grants are sponsored by John’s Crazy Socks, the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation, and Rangam. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the winning sock will be used to fund the scholarship next year.
"My sock design was inspired by the mission statement of John's Crazy Socks and the approaching summertime. I wanted to make something fun, bright, and funny that would make people smile."
"I am a member of Quiz Bowl and Mock Trial and both activities let me use my love for facts, history and law."
"I am a college student, lover of animals, the outdoors, and yoga, a proud autistic woman, and a passionate disability activist and advocate."
"I based this sock design on Chinese New Year."
"The inspiration for this sock design came from a story about Time Traveler, John Titor, and how he traveled back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM 5100 computer."
