Please note post-doctoral fellowships are only open to the geographic area of Philadelphia in the area of basic science to foster the careers of young scientists in the city.

The purpose of the $5,000-$25,000 community grants is to promote local services that enhance the lives of those affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD), expand the capacity of organizations to effectively serve the ASD community, and increase the services available to individuals with ASD. In order to be eligible to apply, organizations must be a registered 501(c)3 organization in the Philadelphia area that serves a direct need in the autism community.
