The Autism Research Training (ART) Program is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Strategic Training Initiative in Health Research (STIHR), with supplemental funding from the Sinneave Family Foundation.  Its goal is to recruit and train outstanding researchers in the field of autism, in disciplines such as genetics, brain imaging, epidemiology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology and others.

Applicants must be registered at a Canadian university, where they complete their core training and conduct their research, under the supervision of a Program Supervisor.
One of the most innovative aspects of the ART Program is the mentorship.  Trainees are mentored by three ART Faculty, chosen by the trainee, in consultation with the Program Advisory Committee (PAC).
The ART Program is now receiving application for admission for 2015. The deadline to submit an application is March 6th, 2015. Click here to access the application page.

Note: Because of changes to the funding supports available to the ART Program, we are not able to offer a student stipend to candidates admitted following this competition.

The 2015 ART Summer School will be held August 24-28 in Montreal, QC. Deadline to apply to the Summer School-only program is July 3rd, 2015.
