Funding Opportunities and Tips

Tips for Writing Proposals, Grant Reports, and Highlights

NSF Grants

Grants from DARPA and IARPA

  • I2O: Information Innovation Office: a new office at DARPA (merging previous IPTO and TCTO offices) with interests that intersect the TCS community.
  • IARPA: Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency.
  • Computer Science Study Group (CSSG): a program for junior faculty
    • Supports 12 junior computer scientists per year and includes numerous visits/meetings to introduce researcher to DoD challenges.
    • “Technologies of interest” include complexity theory/TCS.
  • Defense Sciences Office (DSO).
  • In general, good to contact program managers directly. (e.g., Todd Hylton and Tony Falcone in DSO). Most offices also have “office-wide” BAA for research that doesn’t fit the specific solicitations. Many also welcome short (2-page) whitepapers on exciting new directions they should be interested in. Generally looking for radically new ideas.
