SFARI Bridge to Independence Award Program

Modified: August 3, 2015

The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) seeks to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance.  Grants awarded through the Bridge to Independence Award program are intended to invest in the next generation of top autism investigators by identifying talented early-career scientists interested in autism research and facilitating their transition to an independent research career. This request for applications (RFA) is aimed at senior postdoctoral fellows who intend to seek tenure-track faculty positions during the 2015-16 academic year.

Please visit the program site for more information. First-stage proposals are due by August 28th and details for the submission process can be found on the program webpage.
