Potential PIs,


A substantial funding opportunity is open in the DOD for innovative basic
research. The Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship provides substantial funding,
$3m over 5 years, to a faculty member to conduct innovative research of
interest to DOD. As it says, in the email below, they are looking for a more
diverse set of PIs this year and are also interested in research affecting
the environment the military operates in. Do you have a unique experimental
campaign, big data project or something else to propose? A link to the
announcement follows.

scientists the Department wants to engage with.  However, we would like to
see a more diverse set of PIs apply this year and into the future.   Could
you make sure that qualified PIs in your networks in schools without strong
central opportunity identification programs are aware of the program and the


The Office of Naval Research (ONR) manages the VBFF program for USD (R&E),
and publishes the current Funding Opportunity Announcement on Grants.gov
(Opportunity ID: 306562).


There will be an information webinar on the VBFF program and the current FOA
on July 10, 2 PM EDT.  The webex information is attached.  


Thanks for your help.
