American Foundation For Suicide
Prevention (AFSP) - Due Dec. 1
AFSP research grants support studies that aim to increase understanding of the causes of suicide and factors related to
suicide risk, or to test treatments and other interventions designed to prevent suicide. Investigators from all academic
disciplines are eligible to apply, and both basic science and applied research projects will be considered, providing the
study has an essential focus on suicide or suicide prevention. AFSP grants are awarded for one or two-year periods.
Grant applications are not accepted from for-profit organizations, or from federal or state government agencies.
AFSP offers several types of research grants:
Distinguished Investigator Grants for up to $100,000 over two years are awarded to investigators at the level of
associate professor or higher with an established record of research and publication on suicide.
Standard Research Grants for up to $75,000 over two years are awarded to individual investigators at any level.
Linked Standard Research Grants for three or more sites of up to $225,000 over two years are awarded to investigators
at any level.
Young Investigator Grants for up to $85,000 over two years are awarded to investigators at the level of assistant
professor or lower. In addition to a maximum of $75,000 for the investigator’s research, these grants provide an additional
$10,000 ($5,000 per year) for an established suicide researcher who will mentor the Young Investigator.
Pilot Grants for up to $30,000 over one or two years are awarded to investigators at any level. These grants provide
seed money for new projects that have the potential to lead to subsequent larger investigations.
