The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention raises awareness, funds scientific research, and provides resources and aid to those affected by suicide.
To advance this mission, AFSP is inviting applications for its Standard Research Innovation Grants program. Grants of up to $100,000 over two years will be awarded in support of new directions or initiatives in suicide research from a variety of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, social work, and health services administration. Grants are not intended to support the development or implementation of prevention programs, educational programs, treatments, or other interventions that do not have a significant research component.
While prior research on suicide is not required, applicants are expected to show evidence of prior research or research training in a related field.
To be eligible, PIs must be affiliated with not-for-profit institution or organization in the U.S. or abroad. Applications from the Veterans Administration also are eligible.
See the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
