Grants will Fund Doctoral Students Focused on Autism Research
The Autism Science Foundation has released its first request for scientific proposals. ASF is inviting applications for a Doctoral Training Award for graduate students interested in pursuing careers in basic and clinical scientific research relevant to autism spectrum disorders. The proposed training must be scientifically linked to autism.
Applicants must be currently enrolled in a program leading to a research doctorate, a combined degree such as an M.D./Ph.D.or an M.D. at an accredited university. Each student must also have a mentor to oversee his/her work and provide appropriate training.
“We are thrilled to be soliciting grant applications after only five months of fundraising and operations” said Autism Science Foundation President Alison Singer. “Outstanding research is the greatest gift we can offer our families and we intend to make every dollar count”.
