AFSP offers Suicide Research Grants in six categories.
Distinguished Investigator Grants (up to $100,000 over 2 years):Grants awarded to investigators at the level of associate professor or higher with an established record of research and publication on suicide.
Young Investigator Grants (up to $85,000 over 2 years):Grants awarded to investigators at or below the level of assistant professor. These grants must allocate $10,000 ($5,000 per year) of their award for an established suicide researcher to mentor the Young Investigator. AFSP is available to assist you in identifying a suitable mentor.
Postdoctoral Research Fellowships (up to $104,000 over 2 years):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 $46,000 per year and an institutional allowance of $6,000 per year.
Pilot Grants (up to $30,000 over one or two years):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.
