The DEPSCoR Program

The national DEPSCoR program emphasizes single investigator awards of high interest to DoD. Multiple investigator proposals are allowed but must clearly focus on a single project. Each DEPSCoR state submits a package of proposals for these individually fundable projects. Key considerations in the success of DEPSCoR proposals include.

  • Demonstrate strong technical merit.
  • Address critical needs of one or more DoD agencies.
  • Strong endorsement from the cognizant DoD program manager.
  • Build research infrastructure (people, equipment) in the state.
Researchers should not see DEPSCoR as the only avenue or entry point for obtaining DoD funding. If you are submitting a proposal through DEPSCoR, you should also be seeking funding through other DoD programs as well.
