AFOSR Additional Funding LinkAdditional Information of Eligibility:
Eligible applicants may be institutions of higher education, nonprofits, commercial organizations, international or foreign organizations or governments, individuals, state, local, and Indian Tribal governments.
Eligibility also depends on the statutory authority that permits NOAA to fund the proposed activity.
Funding of Federal organizations is outside the scope of this announcement; if funding authority exists, Federal organizations seeking NOAA funds should contact relevant program officials about the interagency agreement process.
If the applicant is a university that has a NOAA Cooperative Institute (CI), the institution is encouraged to submit an application that will be associated with the CI.
The application must specify the name of the CI, its most recent award number, and the NOAA-approved research theme applicable to the work to be performed in the project narrative.
The application will use the facilities and administrative rate (F&A or Indirect Cost Rate) associated with the most recent CI award.
If the application is selected for funding, NOAA will notify the university that a separate competitive award will be issued with its own award number.
However, the competitive award will include a Special Condition (SC) that evidences the link between it and the CI award.
The SC will provide: (1) that the university has submitted the application to be associated with the CI; (2) that any existing University/NOAA memorandum of agreement (MOA) will be incorporated by reference into the terms of the competitive award; and (3) that any progress report(s) for the competitive award must follow the timetable of and be submitted by the CI directly to the funding program.
Copies of these progress reports will be attached to the CI's performance report as an appendix. Full Opportunity Web Address:http://afrl.dodlive.mil/funding/Contact: Agency Email Description:
