My two daughters were both internationally adopted. Sophie, 8 years old, is from Haiti and Grace, 14 years old is from Russia. Grace was diagnosed with autism at age six and we've been piecing the puzzle together since before the diagnosis. Grace has been a runner since I met her in Russia.

This Your Dollars @ Work post features six students at the University of Arkansas who have received scholarships to the university's Autism Support Program through the Brian and Patricia Kelly Postsecondary Scholarship Fund which provides funding to postsecondary programs to award scholarships to young adults and adults with autism, including 2- and 4-year colleges, vocational and technical schools and transition programs.
