VTAC/CAR is pleased to announce the Hulick Serving Spirit Award!

The Hulick Serving Spirit Award (2019-20) funds a continuing outstanding Graduate Student in the disabilities field whose work is affiliated with the VT Autism Clinic and Center for Autism Research.  The award is intended to support 2 years of professional and academic training of a graduate student seeking to pursue a service or research career that will positively impact special needs populations and their families, primarily those born with congenital disabilities, both intellectual and/or developmental, and with a special emphasis on autism spectrum disorders or related conditions.  Broadly defined, the field includes areas such as autism, learning and developmental disabilities, and intellectual challenges. Related work in the field includes normative or atypical development, work with individuals or families, prevention or treatment, and basic or applied research.
