Call for Applications: OAR Education Grant

Sunday, March 1, 2020

Sponsored by: Organization for Autism Research


We, the Organization for Autism Research, believe in the value of teaching today’s youth about autism spectrum disorders. Children who learn about the disorder develop better relationships with their peers with autism. OAR has helped educate more than 125,000 children through the Kit for Kids Peer Education Program since 2012. This year, we are expanding our commitment to educating students by awarding grants ranging from $500-$5,000. These grants will support projects that aim to promote autism awareness and acceptance among students in grades K-8 using OAR’s peer education program.

Who can apply?

Teachers, youth group organizers, parents, and autism professionals are eligible to apply. Applicants with projects that impact low-income communities are encouraged to apply. See application instructions for further details.

What does the grant cover?

OAR will support projects that use OAR’s peer education materials (Kit for Kids, Autism Tuned In) to increase autism awareness and acceptance. Example projects include awareness campaigns, workshops, and presentations. Eligible expenses include but are not limited to OAR’s peer education materials, print costs, honorariums and travel expenses for guest speakers, venue rental, and refreshments.

When are applications due?

OAR is now accepting applications. Applications must be submitted no later than March 1, 2020 for projects starting as early as April 1, 2020. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
