The Center for Autism Spectrum Disorder (CASD) in Teachers College, in coordination with Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA), offers the Terry and Sandra Tucker Family Autism Research Grant program for undergraduate and graduate student research related to autism spectrum disorders.

These grants are made possible through the generosity of Terry and Sandra Tucker and their understanding of the importance of supporting research in the field of autism.

Two separate competitions are held for student research projects and for travel funds to present at academic conferences.
