Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International faculty researchers at eligible nonprofit, governmental, and private institutions to conduct high quality and innovative research in autism spectrum disorders. Funding is intended to provide 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.

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.

In particular, applications that propose research to link genetic or other ASD risk factors to molecular, cellular, circuit or behavioral mechanisms of ASD are encouraged.
