Postponing the launch of the upcoming RFA on Genomics of ASD

Earlier this year we announced here that this summer we would be issuing a request for applications (RFA) for the Genomics of ASD grants. However, as we have occasionally done in the past, this summer the SFARI science team will regroup to evaluate our entire grant portfolio to identify gaps where SFARI funding is likely to create the most impact. To allow sufficient time for these activities we have decided to postpone the 2023 Genomics of ASD RFA.

Simons Foundation Accepting Applications for Neuroscience Undergraduate Research Fellowships

The Simons Foundation is now accepting applications from undergraduate students to participate in the Shenoy Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Neuroscience, or SURFiN, for the 2023–2024 academic year. The program’s goal is to spark and sustain interest in neuroscience among undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in neuroscience research. SURFiN is a joint initiative from the Simons Collaboration on the Global Brain (SCGB), the Simons Collaboration on Plasticity and the Aging Brain (SCPAB) and the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI).
