Eligibility: 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.

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.
