Learn about the research projects we fund

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.
