Sao Paulo

The Sao Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) offers the funding schemes "Regular Grants" and "Thematic Grants" for implementation of the Lead Agency process.

SNSF-FAPESP applications are part of the project funding scheme at the SNSF. Applicants can have a maximum of two ongoing grants at the same time in this scheme, but only if they clearly address separate topics.

In both countries the maximum project duration is 48 months.

Each funder defines its own success rate.

Applications have to be submitted in English.

Submission: The SNSF and the FAPESP have agreed to take turns as the Lead Agency on a yearly basis. Proposals can be submitted to the SNSF by 1 April 2021, and to the FAPESP at any time between 1 October 2021 and 30 September 2022.
