The objective of this FOA is to invite white papers and, after receipt of an RFP, proposals that can assist the Air Force in supporting the DoD STEM education and outreach goals and strategies.
The OSD STEM Office seeks to execute a program that effectively implements critical elements of DoD's
Science and Technology strategy.
Education and outreach activities will support and help sustain the nation’s future STEM capabilities and readiness.
Such education and outreach could potentially also aid the ongoing mission of the DoD through sustainable partnerships, student engagement opportunities (including authentic STEM experiences), and mentorship.
