Grant Opportunities - Behavior Analysis Program | Briar Cliff University

Behavior Analysis Grant Opportunities

Did you know that if you’re going to school to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) or Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA), you could have up to half of your tuition and fees paid for?

The state of Iowa has established a grant program that provides funding for students who are enrolled in an accredited program (like Briar Cliff’s) to become a BCBA or BCaBA. The purpose of the program is to increase the number of behavior analysts in Iowa, and provide better services to autism support programs across the state.


  • Either reside in Iowa or attend a school with a physical location inside the state of Iowa.
  • Be accepted or currently enrolled at an accredited institution that provides approved coursework for BCBA/BCaBA certification (Briar Cliff's undergraduate and graduate programs are fully approved).
  • Demonstrate financial need.

I had no idea about the behavior analytic world when I started college. But ever since I was introduced to the science, I have found my passion ... I get to do something with my life that will benefit others.
