Simons Foundation - Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)
Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for original research on autism spectrum disorders. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full application Funding is intended for new projects, particularly those including novel hypotheses for autism.
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.
Grants awarded through this RFA are intended to provide early support for exploratory ideas, particularly those with novel hypotheses for autism. Appropriate projects for this mechanism include those considered higher risk with less assurance of ultimate impact, but with the potential for transformative results.
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.
