Stress Less

To help students cope with the stress of Finals Week, the University of Delaware Library offered a variety of fun activities from May 19-26 to give a brief respite from studying.

“These scholarships and stipends support deserving individuals who are developing and honing their skills in the autism field,” said Teresa Avery, executive director at Autism Delaware. “Our goal in offering this financial support is to acknowledge the unique expertise these individuals bring to the autism community and to let them know how much we value them.”
