The Simons Foundation has announced a Request for Applications (RFA) with awarded grants intended to provide funding for investigators conducting bold, creative, and rigorous research into the underlying biology, causes, and treatment of autism spectrum disorders. 

Pilot Awards are intended for investigators who are requesting support for small-scale projects or early-stage experiments that will build on preliminary data or a prior track record and lead to competitive applications for funding by SFARI or other organizations. Investigators new to the field of autism are encouraged to apply for these awards. The maximum budget is $330,000, including indirect costs, for two (2) years. 

Research Awards are intended for investigators with demonstrated experience who are requesting support for compelling, high-impact research on an experimental hypothesis for which preliminary data have already been gathered. The maximum budget is $975,000, including indirect costs, for three (3) years.

Letter of Interest Deadline: December 1, 2017
Pilot Award: $330,000
Research Award: $975,000
