Eagles Autism Foundation invites investigators to apply for support of basic and clinical research of Autism Spectrum Disorders. As the Foundation continues to grow, year to year the requirements and opportunities for funding will evolve. This year’s funding will support 2-year Pilot Grants worldwide and Post-Doctoral Fellowships within Philadelphia.

For Pilot grants and Post-Doctoral Fellowships apply via the link below. Please ensure you are designating the correct type of application.

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.

Careful consideration will be given to applications that specifically address the needs of underserved communities, which may include non-English speaking populations, and other vulnerable groups. Please reach out to [email protected] with any questions or concerns. Application will be available beginning June 17th, 2024 and will be due September 9, 2024. Funding notification is projected to be sent January 2025.
