February 2015 – OAR Invites Proposals for its Annual Applied Research Competition
Since the inception of the annual Applied Research Competition in 2002, the Organization for Autism Research (OAR) has spent over $3.3 million in support of autism research. OAR invites researchers to submit pre-proposals for the 2015 application round by March 30, 2015.
Through this program, OAR will fund 1-2 year studies that expand the body of autism research in a way that produces practical results, and offers to enhance the quality of life for persons with autism and their families. Awardees will receive a maximum of $30,000.
Researchers interested in applying are encouraged to review the full Request for Proposal and Funding guidelines. Both can be accessed here.
