American Foundation for Suicide Prevention - funding opportunities 2015 ($ 300,000)
The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) invites applications for its Annual Grant Cycle. The deadline for proposals is November 16, 2015. AFSP Suicide Research Grants support studies aimed at increasing our understanding of the causes of suicide and factors related to suicide risk, or that test treatments and other interventions designed to prevent suicide. Funding is between $ 30,000 and $ 300,000.
Researchers can apply for the following grants:
• Distinguished Investigator Grants: awarded to investigators at the level of associate professor or higher with an established record of research and publication on suicide;
• Standard Research Grants: awarded to individual investigators at any level;
• Linked Standard Research Grants: awarded to investigators at any level performing research involving three or more unique sites with each site contributing unique expertise, as well as data collection;
• Young Investigator Grants: awarded to investigators at or below the level of assistant professor;
• Postdoctoral Research Fellowships: awarded to investigators who have received a Ph.D., M.D., or other doctoral degree within the preceding six years and have had no more than three years of fellowship support;
• Pilot Grants: awarded to investigators at any level, these grants provide seed funding for new projects that have the potential to lead to larger investigations. These grants typically entail feasibility studies rather than hypothesis-driven research.
All grants are designed to support research on suicide from a variety of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, social work, health services administration, 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.
