American Foundation for Suicide Prevention: Standard Research Innovation Grants
http://www.afsp.org

The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is accepting applications to support research on suicide from a variety of disciplines, including psychiatry, medicine, psychology, genetics, epidemiology, neurobiology, sociology, nursing, social work, health services administration, and many others. Grants are not intended to support the development or implementation of prevention programs, educational programs, treatments, or other interventions that do not have a significant research component. Eligible Principal Investigators (PIs) can hold any academic rank. Although prior research on suicide is not required, applicants are expected to show evidence of prior research or research training in a related field. These grants are intended to fund new directions and initiatives in suicide research rather than to supplement the applicant's existing research and junior investigators. AFSP research grants and fellowships are not designed to cover the total cost of the research proposed.  The grantee institution is expected to provide the required physical facilities and administrative services normally available in an institution. No Cost Extensions can be requested only after the final grant payment has been made. The NCE request will be evaluated in the (original) final quarter of the grant. If approved, the maximum term for such an extension is one year, thus postponing the closing date of the grant, and postponing the due date for the Final Reports. Please note that grant extensions will not normally be granted in cases where the problems or delays being experienced make it unlikely that the project will be successfully completed. Indirect costs are not allowed.

Application Deadline: November 15, 2017. Award notifications made in May 2018 with earliest start date of October 2018. Application Guidelines: https://afsp.org/our-work/research/grant-information/.
