Mikel Rijsdijk Grant
Make coaching services available to all Neurodivergents
In June 2021, the “Mikel Rijsdijk Grant” was initiated, a project created by Saskia Wenniger, with support of the Neurodiversity Foundation and the Neurodiversity Education Academy. The grant enables neurodivergent the ability to receive education and coaching about neurodiversity and about their own neurodivergency. The grant is designed to support those, who struggle affording such services.
Each edition, individuals can sign up themselves as a potential receiver of the grant. There have been multiple neurodivergents in recent editions, being supported with granted services they felt needed in order to thrive.
The Mikel Rijsdijk Grant, is usually awarded in the period close to Neurodiversity Pride Day. The supply of the Grant is limited. For those financially capable of paying for these services, we ask you to leave this opportunity open for those who struggle doing so.

About Saskia Wenniger
I decided to become a coach for this specific clientele after discovering that I tended to attract neurodivergent clients. At the time I was working on building a career around my passions. And I found a lot of clients also stuck in their jobs and eager to pursue new possibilities, but somehow not making much progress on their own. Coaching seemed to help them immensely!
