American Foundation for Suicide Prevention Invites Applications for Pilot Innovation Grants

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention raises awareness, funds scientific research, and provides resources and aid to those affected by suicide.

To advance its mission, AFSP is inviting applications for its Pilot Innovation Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $30,000 over up to two years will be awarded to investigators at any level for projects that show promise in opening up new areas of suicide research. Pilot Innovation grants provide seed funding for new projects that have the potential to lead to larger investigations and typically entail feasibility studies rather than hypothesis-driven research. Examples include manual development and new biomarker development.

The foundation supports research in a range of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, social work, health services administration, and others. Grants are not intended to support the development or implementation of prevention programs, educational programs, treatment regimes, or other interventions that do not have a significant research component.

To be eligible, applicants must be affiliated with a not-for-profit institution or organization in the U.S. or abroad. Applications are not accepted from for-profit organizations or from federal or state government agencies.

See the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: November 15, 2019
