We host annual research competitions to support pilot studies in applied autism research.

The projects we fund have the potential to directly impact the day-to-day quality of life of those with autism. Since 2002, we have awarded more than $3.5 million in grants to support 205 studies. See a list of published research studies that have been funded by OAR.
