American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: Pilot Innovation GrantsDeadline: November 15, 2019
American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) Pilot Research grants aim to provide seed money for projects that show promise in opening up new areas of suicide research. These grants provide seed funding for new projects that have the potential to lead to larger investigations. Pilot Research grants typically entail feasibility studies rather than hypothesis-driven research.
All Foundation research grants are designed to support research on suicide from a variety of disciplines including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, health services administration, social work, and many others. 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.
Amount: Up to $15,000 per year for up to two years.
Eligibility: Individuals affiliated with not-for-profit institutions or organizations in the U.S. and abroad; the Veterans Administration; and private and public colleges and universities so long as the institution is not-for-profit.
