SFARI 2019 Research Award – Request for Application

SFARI 2019 Research Award – Request for Applications

The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is pleased to announce the 2019 Research Award request for applications (RFA).

Grants awarded through this program are intended to provide support for the investigation of key unresolved research questions in autism, particularly those that connect etiologies to brain function and behavior. Unlike SFARI Pilot Awards, risk and novelty are welcome but are not required criteria for the proposal to be considered meritorious. Competitive applications will have preliminary data or other relevant groundwork that justifies substantial investment on the proposed topic.

The deadline for applications is January 11, 2019, 5:00 p.m. EST. The budget is $1,300,000 or less, over a period of up to four years. Applications selected for SFARI Research Awards will be announced April 17, 2019, with funding expected to begin in the summer of 2019.

More information about the RFA, including a discussion of the critical issues that SFARI considers relevant for the Research Award, is available here.
