There are a few open ONR funding opportunities that have approaching deadlines.
The Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) Due 4:00 PM Eastern Time, Friday, 25 September 2015
DURIP funds will be used for the acquisition of major equipment to augment current or develop new research capabilities in support of DoD-relevant research. Proposals may request $50,000 to $1,000,000. Proposals for purely instructional equipment are not eligible. General-purpose computing facilities are not appropriate for DURIP funding, but requests for computers for DoD-relevant research programs are appropriate.
The Multidisciplinary University Research Initiatives Program (MURI) White Papers are due 08 Sep 2015 (Tuesday) and Full Proposals are due 07 Dec 2015 (Monday)
Multidisciplinary University Initiative (MURI) efforts involve teams of researchers investigating high priority topics and opportunities that intersect more than one traditional technical discipline. For many military problems this multidisciplinary approach serves to stimulate innovations, accelerate research progress and expedite transition of results into naval applications.
An individual wishing to apply for a Young Investigator award must submit a research proposal and a supporting letter through the appropriate university officials. ONR makes awards to institutions, not individuals. The research proposal should follow the format described in ONR funding opportunity announcement (FOA) 15-FOA-0006, listed among ONR’s broad agency announcements, in Section IV titled, “Application and Submission Information.”
