The Air Force Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) is an excellent way
for new principal investigators to accelerate their careers in basic
research with three years of funding at up to $150,000 per year. Each year,
every AFOSR program can nominate one YIP recipient. AFOSR's Cognitive &
Computational Neuroscience program is in its second year and funds basic
research in neuroscience and at the intersection of neuroscience and
artificial intelligence.

Unlike with most of AFOSR's research grants that are open to researchers
worldwide, YIP applicants must be US persons (citizens, nationals, or
permanent residents) with full-time, permanent positions at US institutions
(by Oct. 1, 2020) who received their doctorates no earlier than April 1,
2013. White papers are due May 14, 2020, and the proposal submission
deadline is July 14, 2020. Please see the funding opportunity announcement
at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=325614 for
complete details and requirements.

Program Description: The Air Force YIP supports scientists and engineers who
have received Ph.D. or equivalent degrees within the last seven years and
show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research. The
objectives of this program are:
1. to foster creative basic research in science and engineering; 
2. enhance early career development of outstanding young investigators; 
3. and increase opportunities for the young investigator to recognize the
Air Force mission and related challenges in science and engineering.

Eligibility:  Individual awards are made to U.S. institutions of higher
education, industrial laboratories, for-profit businesses, or non-profit
research organizations where the principal investigator (PI) is employed on
a full-time basis and holds a regular position. Researchers working at a
Federally Funded Research and Development Center or DoD Laboratory are not
eligible for this competition. Research proposals must address Research
Interests of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, FA9550-19-S-0003,
found at
https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=314753 (see
Amendment 003).

Most YIP awards are funded up to $150,000 per year for three years, for a
total of $450,000. Exceptional proposals will be considered individually for
higher funding levels and/or longer durations.
