We awarded JiM Grants

Autism knows no boundaries. All over the world, parents and specialists are struggling with the problem - how best to help their child. They don't always find the answer. They don't have other parents around them, specialists, access to knowledge and money to acquire it. The JiM Foundation and the Autism-Europe Congress are helping them.

Once again, we have jointly awarded JiM Grants - scholarships that fund participation in the Congress for 30 people who cannot afford it on their own. We made the selection from 158 applications that came from all over the world. We took into account experience in the field of autism, the ability to pass on the knowledge gained to others, the financial reasons for the grant request, and the wealth level of the country (according to the GDP per capita index according to World Bank data).
