Autism Science Foundation



The Autism Science Foundation is a nonprofit corporation founded in 2009 with the aim to support autism research. The foundation supports autism research by providing funding and other assistance to scientists and organizations conducting, facilitating, publicizing, and disseminating autism research. The foundation funds pre- and postdoctoral fellowships to those interested in pursuing careers in basic and clinical research centered on autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Since its establishment, ASF has funded over $700,000 in pre-and postdoctoral grants. ASF also provides travel grants to the International Meeting for Autism Research (IMFAR) for parents of children with autism, individuals with autism, special education teachers, and other stakeholders.
