Special Funding Announcements: Jul 30 - Aug 30
Topic Details Deadline
Department of Defense Funding Opportunities June 2015 DOD: Funding Opportunity: FY 2016 MURI BAA On June 17, the Department of Defense (DOD) released the broad agency announcement (BAA) for the fiscal year (FY) 2016 Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) as part of the larger University Research Initiative (URI) aimed at institutions of higher education. MURIs remain one of the signature DOD research programs for the university community and stand as the benchmark for building a defense-oriented research capability on campus. For FY 2016, DOD?s proposed basic research budget has been decreased in favor of more applied accounts. The overall funding amount for FY 2016 MURI awards reflects this decrease at $145 million versus $149 million in FY 2015. DOD: Funding Opportunity: FY 2016 DURIP BAA On June 18, the Department of Defense (DOD) released the broad agency announcement (BAA) for the fiscal year (FY) 2016 Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) competition. DURIP, a part of DOD?s University Research Initiative (URI) suite of programs, provides acquisition funding for equipment used to support defense-related research activities on campus. DURIP funding supports the purchase of major, state of the art equipment (greater than $50,000) that augments current university capabilities or develops new capabilities to perform cutting edge defense research and associated graduate student research training. According to DOD, DURIP funding is not appropriate for the construction or modification of buildings, building support systems, fixed equipment (i.e. clean rooms or fume hoods) or general-purpose computing facilities. DURIP remains an extremely competitive funding program with the elimination of congressional earmarks and the sharp decline in similar instrumentation programs across federal agencies. In FY 2015, 695 proposals were received. DOD: Funding Opportunity: FY 2016 NSSEFF BAA On June 18, the Department of Defense (DOD) released the fiscal year (FY) 2016 broad agency announcement (BAA) for the National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellowship (NSSEFF) program. The NSSEFF program is intended to attract and engage the best and brightest in academia to conduct a range of basic research in areas of interest to DOD. The program is overseen by the Basic Research Office within the Office of Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD (R&E)), and managed by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) who released the solicitation.
Breakthrough Award Level 3 (Newly Released) Breakthrough Award Levels 1 and 2 (Coming in Late August) Detailed descriptions of the funding opportunity, evaluation criteria, and submission requirements can be found in the Program Announcements. The Program Announcements are available electronically for downloading from the website ( ), the CDMRP website ( and the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) ( ). All CDMRP funding opportunities, both recently and previously released, are available on the CDMRP website ( ). Subsequent notifications will be sent when additional funding opportunities are released. A listing of all open CDMRP funding opportunities can be obtained on the website by performing a basic search using CFDA Number 12.420. Submission is a two-step process requiring both (1) pre-application submission through the electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP) ( and (2) application submission through ( Refer to the General Application Instructions, Section II.A. for registration and submission requirements for eBRAP and eBRAP is a multifunctional web-based system that allows PIs to submit their pre-applications electronically through a secure connection, to view and edit the content of their pre-applications and full applications, to receive communications from the CDMRP, and to submit documentation during award negotiations and period of performance. A key feature of eBRAP is the ability of an organization?s representatives and PIs to view and modify the application submissions associated with them. eBRAP will validate application files against the specific Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity requirements and discrepancies will be noted in an email to the PI and in the Full Application Files tab in eBRAP. It is the applicant?s responsibility to review all application components for accuracy as well as ensure proper ordering as specified in this Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity.

Blue Waters Allocation for Illinois Researchers Applications Due September 15 Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are invited to apply by Sept. 15 for allocations of time on the powerful Blue Waters supercomputer. Information session: 2 pm on Friday, Sept. 4 in Room 1040 of the NCSA Building, 1205 W. Clark St., Urbana. Illinois faculty, staff, and post-docs can apply now for both exploratory projects, intended to enable them to prepare a code for Blue Waters, and general allocations, intended for large-scale research projects. A typical exploratory proposal will request 20,000-50,000 node hours, which will permit a few short tests at full machine scale as well as time for testing at smaller scales. A typical general proposal will be for 30,000-1 million node hours. Visiting and adjunct faculty are eligible to apply if they will hold an appointment at the U of I for the period of the Blue Waters allocations and if Illinois will be their primary institutional home during this period. All proposals can include co-PIs and collaborators from other institutions. For more information, visit: Questions? Contact the Blue Waters Project Office at September 15, 2015
