2023 Winter Pilot Award

Simons Foundation - Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)

Grant Provider's 990

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #188331

Grant Description

Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for original research related to autism spectrum disorders. Funding is intended for new projects, particularly those including novel hypotheses for autism. Early-career researchers are encouraged to apply.

The mission of the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is to improve the understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance. To this end, SFARI is soliciting applications for Pilot awards from individuals who will conduct bold, imaginative, rigorous, and relevant research.

The goal of the Pilot Award is to provide early support for exploratory ideas, particularly those with novel hypotheses. Appropriate projects for this mechanism include those considered higher risk but with the potential for transformative results.

This funding mechanism is particularly suitable for investigators who are new to the autism field, though those new to the field are encouraged to consult with experts in autism research to ensure their projects are relevant to the human condition.

In particular, applications are encouraged that propose research to link genetic or other ASD risk factors to molecular, cellular, circuit or behavioral mechanisms and set the stage for development of novel interventions.

Eligibility:

  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

All applicants and key collaborators must hold a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and have a faculty position or the equivalent at a college, university, medical school or other research facility.

Investigators new to the field of autism are encouraged to apply for these awards.

Applications may be submitted by domestic and foreign nonprofit organizations; public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories, and units of state and local government; and eligible agencies of the federal government. There are no citizenship or country requirements.

Pre-proposal Conference:

For instructions on how to submit an application through the new grants management system SAM, the Simons Foundation will hold an informational session on Tuesday, December 6.
