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.
TBI Endpoints Development Initiative?s Seed Project Request for Applications This e-mail is to notify the research community of the recently released funding opportunity under the TBI Endpoints Development (TED) Initiative that is funded by the Department of Defense (DOD) and managed by the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP). The TED Initiative is pleased to announce that the first phase of its application process for Seed Project Awards is now open. The TED Initiative will award two (2) one-year Seed Project Awards of $275,000 each, and two (2) one-year Exploratory Seed Project Awards of $150,000 each. Detailed descriptions of the funding opportunity, evaluation criteria, and submission requirements can be found in the Request for Applications Announcement, which is available electronically as an attachment or visit the TED website at: Submission is a two-step process requiring both (1) a Letter of Intent (LOI) and (2) an Invitation for Full Application. Applicants must submit a Letter of Intent using the TED LOI form attached to the Request for Applications. A TED investigator must be identified as a resource and ?sponsor? for the application. The LOI form, a 2-page description of the proposed study and the PIs biosketch should be submitted as a single PDF to by 5 pm PST on Friday, 31 July 2015.
