Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)

Grants to USA, Canada, and International faculty at IHEs or research facilities for autism research. Funding is intended to support rigorous research to improve treatment, diagnosis, and understanding of autism spectrum disorders. The goal of the grant is the investigation of key unresolved research questions in autism, particularly those that connect genetic etiologies to brain function and behavior.
SFARI welcomes risk and novelty in Research Award proposals, but potential impact on the autism research field will be the most important criterion. Competitive applications will have preliminary data or other relevant groundwork that justifies substantial investment in the proposed topic.
While SFARI remains open to persuasive arguments for the relevance of any particular project, Research Awards should be aligned with SFARI’s scientific perspectives. Below are a few examples of types of research questions that address SFARI’s overarching goals:
The above-mentioned topics are neither exhaustive nor exclusionary but are illustrative of key research issues in autism that may be appropriate for investigation through a Research Award.
For additional information, please review SFARI’s recent changes in grant award mechanisms. Applicants are strongly advised to familiarize themselves with SFARI’s currently funded projects and resources in order to think about how a proposal might complement ongoing efforts.
