The application for 2016 is now closed!!  Please check back in January of 2017 for scholarship funds for the fall of 2017!!!  


Our goal for 2017 is to award Ruby’s Rainbow scholarships to individuals with Down Syndrome seeking higher education or post-secondary enrichment classes. Ruby’s Rainbow scholarships are up to $3,000 per awarded individual, subject to available funds for 2017.

The Maudie’s scholarship is up to $5,000 and is awarded to one select applicant per year. This individual is co-selected by Maudie’s after reviewing all scholarship applications. We highly encourage you to submit anything that would help give us a clear vision of your personality, strengths, accomplishments and future goals.

We are excited to announce we will also have two more $5,000 scholarships this year as well,  The Austin Board of Realtors Foundation Scholarship Award and the Walt Warrior Scholarship Award!!
