The Autism Science Foundation invites applications for a new Post-Undergraduate Two-Year Research Fellowship award designed to support students who have received a bachelor’s degree, and who wish to gain more intense experience in autism research by working full-time in a lab environment for two years prior to entry into a graduate program. The application should include a plan for the fellow to spend their time working to advance either an existing research study or help launch a new research project with significant guidance and support by a mentor, advisor, and other more experienced research staff in a well-established autism lab. Applicants need not already be accepted to graduate school.
The Autism Science Foundation will make a number of awards determined by its available financial resources. Each award will provide $30,000/year for two years. No portion of these funds shall be used to cover indirect university costs or other expenses, unless at the expressed permission of ASF prior to submitting the application.
