SFARI’s plans for requests for grant applications 2024

To ensure that our funding is as impactful as possible, SFARI will be undergoing a strategic planning process in the first half of 2024. We have thus adjusted our request for applications (RFA) schedule to ensure that the SFARI science team can devote sufficient time and energy to this effort. In 2024, we will hold the Bridge to Independence (BTI) RFA, and one call for Pilot Awards, in tandem with a call for continuation funding for former Pilot Award grantees whose projects have been successful. We will also hold a targeted RFA on Bridging Early Neurodevelopment and Emerging Neural Circuits, as well as a call for proposals for an updated version of SFARI Gene.
