Scientific Research Grants and Fellowship Programs
Autism Speaks Science is committed to being a catalyst for research breakthroughs that improve lives today and deliver a spectrum of solutions in the years ahead. This work involves unraveling the biology of autism, including its varied subtypes and dimensions and translating research findings into life-enhancing solutions.
Autism Speaks is likewise committed to collaborating with the autism community to advance research that translates findings into better evidence-based interventions and tailors and delivers interventions to those who may benefit from them.
Autism Speaks will release a variety of topic-specific grant calls over time. We are pleased to support a wide range of projects.
