VTCAR Student Award Program 2021-22

The application process for the VTCAR Student Award Program is now closed for the 2021-22 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.

For questions regarding the award please contact Angela Scarpa at

To apply to become an affiliate, visit our Becoming a VTCAR Affiliate page.
