Young Investigator Program, Army Research Office

Department of Defense
Continuous through 31 March 2022
Preliminary inquiries encouraged as to the general need for the type of research effort contemplated. Requested to submit whitepaper prior to submission of complete proposal.

The Department of Defense offers four recurring grant programs that benefit new investigators, including opportunities through the Office of Naval Research (ONR), The Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the Army Research Office (ARO) and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). While broad areas of research are supported, the agency will usually evaluate the application in terms of agency need. DoD agencies typically publish lists of desired topic areas.

This program is open to U.S. citizens, U.S. Nationals, and Permanent Resident Aliens holding tenure-track positions at U.S. institutions of higher education, who have held their graduate degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) for fewer than five years at the time of application. Faculty at an institution of higher education which does not designate any faculty appointments as "tenure track" are eligible if that fact is so indicated in the proposal, and the supporting letter from the institute states that the faculty member submitting the proposal will be considered for a permanent appointment.

Awards under this FOA will be made only to U.S. Institutions of Higher Education which award degrees in science, engineering, or mathematics. U.S. Non-profit organizations operating primarily for scientific and educational services may also submit proposals. The Principal Investigator of a proposal must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident (on the date proposals are due), holding a first or second full-time tenure-track or tenuretrack-equivalent faculty position at that university, that has received his/her PhD or equivalent degree on or after 01 January 2012. The term "national" of the United States includes a native resident of a possession of the United States, such as American Samoa. The term “tenure-track-equivalent” is explained on the ONR website: https://www.onr.navy.mil/Science-Technology/Directorates/office-research-discoveryinvention/Sponsored-Research/YIP/tenure-track-equivalent
Applicants may request up to $510,000 for 36-months (up to 170k for each 12-month interval). These funds may be budgeted against any reasonable costs related to conducting the proposed research, for example, salary for the investigator, graduate student support, supplies, and applicable indirect cost. Additional funding may be requested (under the 36-month period) up to $250,000 to cover equipment costs, testing, ship time, etc. These funds must be included as an option and the applicant should discuss any request for additional funding with the Program Officer prior to submission.

Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI)

Department of Agriculture (USDA)
Varies
The AFRI program is the USDA’s largest competitive grants program. AFRI grants cover a broad range of topics touching on areas as diverse as agriculture economics and rural communities, organismal genetic sequencing, renewable energy, water management, food security, and of course, food production. AFRI grants generally use similar criteria for determining eligibility for “new investigator” grants.
