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 105 grants totaling over $189,000 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. International students are eligible to apply.
