Data-to-Policy Fellowship

  1. Autism Data Collaborative

In July 2022, Autism Alliance of Canada, The Sinneave Family Foundation, Kids Brain Health Network, and Autism Speaks Canada partnered to launch the 2022-2024 Autism Alliance of Canada Data-to-Policy Fellowship competition.

The fellowship is an opportunity for highly skilled research trainees from a variety of backgrounds who have an interest in neurodevelopmental disabilities. The award provides a stipend for $40,000 over the course of 18 months and is intended to provide additional funding for trainees who are based at a Canadian university.

Fellows will have an opportunity to play an integral role in supporting the generation and sharing of data and evidence in the autism and broader neurodevelopmental disability sector. Fellows will lead data initiatives that have emerged from the Autism Data Collaborative that can help inform Canada’s National Autism Strategy.
