Grants for Suicide Prevention Research

Innovation Grants

  • Linked Standard Research Innovation Grants: Grants awarded to investigators at any level performing research involving two or more unique sites with each site contributing unique expertise, as well as data collection. Required LOI Due Sep. 15

  • Distinguished Investigator Innovation Grants: Grants awarded to investigators at the level of associate professor or higher with an established record of research and publications.

  • Standard Research Innovation Grants: Grants awarded to individual investigators at any level.

  • Early Career Researcher Innovation Grants: Grants awarded to investigators at or below the level of assistant professor. These grants must allocate $14,000 ($7,000 per year) of their award for an established researcher to mentor the Early Career Researcher. AFSP is available to assist you in identifying a suitable mentor.

  • Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Innovation Grants: Grants 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. Fellows receive a stipend of $56,000 per year and an institutional allowance of $14,000 per year.

  • Pilot Innovation 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. Examples include manual development and new biomarker development.

Deadline: Nov. 15, 2023

Focus Grants

Each year we invite applications for innovative, high-risk, potentially high-yield projects that focus on specific areas of suicide prevention. These areas have been determined by AFSP and its Scientific Council, and are reviewed and updated annually.
