About the JiM Grant
The JiM Foundation is pleased to announce that they will be once again offering the JiM Grant to fund 30 places at the XII International Autism-Europe Congress 2019. Please find the details concerning the grant below.
The aim of the JiM Grant is to award it to people who would not otherwise be able to afford the registration fee costs to attend the Congress. JiM Foundation’s objective is to support the dissemination of knowledge about autism. At JiM Foundation we believe that attending the Congress will help professionals, carers, family members and people on the spectrum, to broaden their horizons. The JiM Grant will be awarded to people who will use the knowledge gained during the Congress and share it with others.
The JiM Grant will cover the Congress registration fees. Applicants will still have to fund their accommodation during the Congress and their own travel to and from the Congress, as well as any subsistence needs.
Fifteen of JiM Grants will be awarded to professionals who work with autistic people (such as: therapists, teachers, medical doctors, support workers and so on). The other fifteen of JiM Grants will be awarded to parents, carers, family members, students, as well as individuals on the autism spectrum.
