The Society of Family Planning (SFP) advances science in family planning, including contraception and abortion, by funding research and promoting the expansion and dissemination of family planning knowledge. SFP also seeks to cultivate a collaborative and supportive environment to foster scholarly activity and leadership in the areas of reproductive health and family planning.

The SFP Research Fund awarded nearly $3 million in our ninth competitive grant funding cycle, the first grant cycle of 2015. The awards are now posted on our grant awards page. Congratulations to all awardees!

Meanwhile, the initial application period for the tenth SFP Research Fund grant cycle has now ended. Review of the concept papers for a multisite grant will be completed in mid-July, and selected applicants will have until August 19 to submit a full proposal. Award decisions for the community-based participatory research (CBPR) and interdisciplinary innovation (I²) grants will be announced in late July.
