American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: Standard Research Innovation Grants

Grant Amount: Up to $100,000 over two years
Deadline: November 15, 2021
Category: Mental health, Suicide,
Additional Information

All AFSP 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 organization-specific prevention programs, educational programs, treatments, or other interventions unless they have a significant research component. In that case a study would be welcome, but it must have generalizability beyond the specific institution or program.

Although prior research on suicide is not required, applicants are expected to show evidence of prior research or research training in a related field. These grants are intended to fund new directions and initiatives in suicide research rather than to support the applicant’s existing research. Supplemental grants to larger grant are encouraged if they add a unique study area that can utilize the structure of any existing grant. For example, adding a group with suicidal ideation/behavior, or adding a longitudinal assessment to a funded study.

Grants are awarded to individual investigators at any level.

Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
