Autism Research Funding | Organization for Autism Research

Research Grants

We are the only autism organization that focuses solely on applied autism research funding. Applied research directly impacts the day-to-day quality of life of those with autism. The research pilot studies we fund examine issues affecting children and adults with autism spectrum disorders as well as their parents, families, teachers, and service providers.

Since 2002, OAR has spent over $4 million in support of autism research.
