Current Funding Opportunities
Approach to Funding
We believe that abortion and contraception policies and practices should be grounded in scientific evidence, and it is with this intention that we offer competitive funding opportunities to support the production of research primed for impact.
We concentrate our finite resources where there is the greatest need and support innovative and impactful projects and scholars. We rely on peer review processes to drive award decisions to strengthen the rigor and impact of the research we fund.
Our commitment to building a diverse, equitable, inclusive, and multidisciplinary community of those who are engaged in the science and medicine of abortion and contraception means that we do not require grant applicants to be current Society of Family Planning members.

With a commitment to supporting research primed for impact, we regularly reflect on the impact of grants we fund and our grantmaking processes.
In 2017, we conducted a retrospective evaluation of our investment in family planning research. The results of this analysis directed us to focus our funding opportunities, make longer-term and larger investments, and to prioritize partnerships between researchers and knowledge brokers.
