The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) released 2023 Winter Pilot Award request for applications. 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 letters of intent is January 12, 2023, 5:00 p.m. EST. The budget is $300,000 or less, over a period of up to two years. Applications selected for 2023 Pilot Awards will be notified May 4, 2023, with funding expected to begin in the second half of 2023.
