Grants of $25,000 to USA, Canada, and International graduate (predoctoral) students and medical students, and grants of $35,000 to postdoctoral scholars, for research activities related to autism spectrum disorders. Funding is intended for training programs that are scientifically linked to autism but the scope may be broadened to include training in a closely related area of scientific research. Special consideration will be given to projects that focus on traditionally under-researched populations, medical comorbidities of autism, a genetically-defined subtype of autism, and studies of families with a high probability of receiving a diagnosis.
Pre- and postdoctoral applicants may apply at any point during their training. The fellow may work on a project that extends out past the funding period; however, there must be specific goals and accomplishments stated as part of the one-year fellowship. The selected awardee also must spend 80% of his/her professional time engaged exclusively in the autism research activities stipulated in the application for the duration of the award, and cannot simultaneously hold another fellowship award during the support period.
Autism Science Foundation will consider all areas of related basic and clinical research including but not limited to: human behavior across the lifespan (language, learning, behavior, communication, social function, motor skills and planning, epilepsy, sleep, repetitive disorders), neurobiology (anatomy, development, neuroimaging), pharmacology, behavioral intervention, neuropathology, genetics and gene/environment interactions, epigenetics, genomics, epigenomics, immunology, molecular and cellular mechanisms, studies employing model organisms and systems, and studies of treatment and service delivery, and dissemination of research findings.
