Graduate Research Grant Competition
Our Graduate Research Grant Competition offers grant awards of $1,000 for students conducting autism research as a requirement in pursuit of a master’s degree and $2,000 for students who are doctoral candidates. This competition is a one-step application and review process. The proposals are due in February annually. The RFP sets the specific due date. OAR announces its grant awards in May. International students are eligible to apply.
Since 2004, we have awarded 116 grants totaling over $208,000 to graduate students in the U.S. and abroad.
We fund studies that will likely produce practical and clearly objective results that may aid parents, families, professionals, and people with autism to make more fully informed choices that will lead to healthier and happier lives.
The open application period is currently closed and will re-open in September 2017
Deadline: Applications closed as of Friday, February 10, 2017 at 11:59 PM EST. Grant winners have been announced – see below for details.
