The Air Force's annual Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) is an
excellent way for new principal investigators in the US to accelerate their
careers in basic research with three years of funding at up to $150,000 per
year. Each year, every AFOSR portfolio can nominate one YIP awardee.
Especially since the Cognitive & Computational Neuroscience portfolio is new
this year, I wanted to make the neuroscience community aware of this
opportunity (and also of the new portfolio).

Unlike most of AFOSR's research grants that are open to researchers
worldwide, YIP awards are limited to US persons (citizens, nationals, or
permanent residents) with full-time, permanent positions at US institutions
who received their doctorates no later than April 1, 2012. The application
deadline for Fiscal Year 2020 awards is June 3, 2019.

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, or non-profit research organizations
where the principal investigator (PI) is employed on a full-time basis and
holds a regular position. YIP PIs must be a U.S. citizen, national, or
permanent resident. 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.

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 duration.
