Grant Outcomes Reports

ASF is committed to giving talented young investigators with cutting-edge ideas the support they need to get their research off the ground. Since 2010, the Autism Science Foundation has funded 21 pre- and postdoctoral training awards. Our yearlong training grants are designed to help young investigators attract major funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and encourage them to dedicate their careers to advancing our understanding of autism.

When surveyed, each of our past grantees reported that the ASF training award was the first autism research grant they had won. Further, they all planned to remain in the autism field, with 83% reporting that our award increased their likelihood of pursuing an autism research career. Two young investigators said the award increased their commitment to specific research areas and confidence in their ability to secure funding and lead future research.

At the end of every grant period, we ask the grantees to share the outcomes of the funding they received.
