The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) is pleased to announce the 2022 Pilot Award request for applications (RFA).

The goal of the Pilot Award is to provide early support for exploratory ideas, particularly those with novel hypotheses. Appropriate projects for this mechanism include those considered higher risk but with the potential for transformative results.

The deadline for submission of applications is March 17, 2022, 5:00 p.m. EDT. The budget is $300,000 or less, over a period of up to two years. Applications selected for 2022 Pilot Awards will be notified July 18, 2022, with funding expected to begin in the fall.

Detailed information and application instructions are available here.
