VTCAR Student Award Program 2022-23

VTCAR is excited to announce that applications for the VTCAR Student Award Program are now being accepted for the 2022-23 academic year.  The VTCAR Student Award Program is for graduate or undergraduate students working with a VTCAR faculty affiliate. The program’s purpose is to provide support up to $500 for a graduate or undergraduate student on research that is consistent with the mission of the Virginia Tech Center for Autism Research (VTCAR). The project must be consistent with the mission of VTCAR, but the scope of projects and use of the funds is left up to the faculty/student team.

Proposals must be received by 5:00 PM on Sept 30, 2022.  Results will be announced by end of day on October 14, 2022 with funding to be available beginning soon thereafter. Funds must be used by June 15, 2023, in accordance with your departmental guidelines.  

For questions regarding the award please contact Angela Scarpa at
