Autism Edmonton and the Autism Research Centre
2017 Graduate Student Pilot Grants
The 2017 Graduate Student Pilot Grants will support individuals conducting graduate research in any field related to Autism Spectrum Disorders to begin May 2017. These Scholarships are jointly funded by Autism Edmonton , and the Autism Research Centre at the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital (affiliated with Alberta Health Services and the University of Alberta). Each pilot grant (maximum $5,000.00) is to be applied towards the operating costs of the successful applicants’ graduate research project.

Each successful applicant will provide a written progress report at 6 months and a final report and presentation of study findings (see below) at the conclusion of the project.
