The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention is seeking applications for its 2018 Linked Standard Grants program.
The annual program is designed to support research on suicide from a variety of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, health services administration, and social work. Grants of up to $300,000 over two years will be awarded to investigators at any level performing research involving two or more unique sites, with each site contributing unique expertise as well as data collection.
The program does not support the development or implementation of prevention programs, educational programs, treatments, or interventions that do not have a significant research component.
To be eligible, applicants must be affiliated with a nonprofit institution or organization in the U.S. or abroad. Grant applications are not accepted from for-profit organizations or from federal or state government agencies; however, applications from the Veterans Administration are eligible.
Letters of Intent must be received no later than September 15, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full application by mid-November 2017.
