In 2004, the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) established the Graduate Research Grant Program intended to encourage and support students conducting research pursuant to graduate and post-graduate studies in disciplines related to assessment, intervention and support of learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and their families. Since then, OAR has awarded 95 grants totaling over $172,000 to graduate students in the U.S. and abroad.
Through this competition, OAR intends to support rising stars in autism
research and promote research in:
- The analysis, evaluation, or comparison of assessment models, treatment
models, or service systems,
- Applied aspects of early and/or school-based education, behavioral,
or communication intervention, or
- Adult issues such as containing education, employment, housing models
and “later intervention.”
- Issues related to family support, social and community integration,
and assessment and intervention with challenging behavior.
OAR seeks to 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.
