The grants are a direct result of the proceeds raised by participants from the 2023 Eagles Autism Challenge, in addition to other foundation-related fundraising initiatives throughout the year.

A total of 70 letters of intent were submitted for research grant funding. The projects were narrowed down to 40 full proposals that went through a comprehensive evaluation process. Each project was carefully reviewed by an independent team of scientists who have demonstrated a clear and steadfast commitment to autism research, services, and programs.
