Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant

What is the Aim of the Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant?

The Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant was established to support basic and applied research in different educational or research institutions, which has a potential for leading to the improvement of naval operations. The grant also aims to support training and stimulation of future researchers in science and engineering disciplines by issuing project grants.

Limitations of the Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant

Basic and applied research in the physical, mathematical, environmental, engineering and life sciences providing knowledge necessary for the Navy to make informed decisions about further exploratory development to provide the technology base from which naval capabilities are drawn. The Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant also gives out partial support to symposia in the listed disciplines. They also help programs that encourage careers in science and engineering by supporting outstanding graduate, undergraduate and high school students pursuing studies in areas of naval concern. The grant also funds programs to increase science and engineering graduates from under-represented minority groups as well as programs that provide means for universities to buy major, high-cost research equipment.

Who are Eligible to Apply for the Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grants?

Private/public educational institutions; other private/public nonprofit organizations which are operated primarily for scientific and educational purposes may apply for the Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grants. Grants cannot be awarded to individuals. Eligibility requirements for Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) training and research instrumentation/ equipment programs are also described in the ONR publication “Guide to Programs”.

How to Apply for the Basic and Applied Scientific Research Grant?

This program is subject to OMB Circular No. A-110. All eligible private/public educational institutions and other private/public nonprofit organizations may submit proposals in response to the relevant Broad Agency Announcement published annually in the Federal Business Opportunities (www.fedbizopps.gov). Information regarding areas of scientific interest and points of contact is contained in the ONR “Guide to Programs”.

Application and award procedures for ONR’s training and research instrumentation/equipment programs is also contained in separate brochures describing these programs.
