National Security Science And Engineering Faculty Fellowship: The National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellowship (NSSEFF) program
The National Security Science and Engineering Faculty Fellowship (NSSEFF) program’s name is hereby changed to the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship program.
Dr. Vannevar Bush (1890-1974) was a forward-thinking policymaker who served as the director of the U.S. Defense Department’s Office of Scientific Research and Development during World War II, coordinating the work of thousands of scientists in the service of ending the war. In his 1945 report to the President of the United States, Science, The Endless Frontier, Bush called for an expansion of government support for science, and he pressed for the creation of the National Science Foundation. Dr. Bush was concerned about how the scientific research supported by DoD during WWII could be sustained with a focus on peacetime goals. He believed that basic research was "the pacemaker of technological progress". "New products and new processes do not appear full-grown," Bush wrote. "They are founded on new principles and new conceptions, which in turn are painstakingly developed by research in the purest realms of science.”
Prior to his DoD work, Dr. Bush was a professor and Dean of Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and founded a large defense and electronics company. Because Dr. Bush’s life work embodies the spirit of the NSSEFF program, the program name is being changed to the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellowship program in his honor.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible Institutions
Accredited U.S. institutions of higher education (universities) with doctoral degree-granting programs are eligible to apply. DoD institutions are not eligible to apply.
All responsible sources from academia and industry may submit proposals under this FOA. Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Minority Institutions (MIs) are encouraged to submit proposals and join others in submitting proposals. However, no portion of this FOA will be set aside for HBCU and MI participation, due to the impracticality of reserving discrete or severable items of this research for exclusive competition among such entities
Non-profit and for-profit organizations may collaborate on proposed research and may receive NSSEFF funds via subaward or subcontract. However, the NSSEFF program is oriented towards funding research at universities. Universities must perform the majority of the proposed work and receive the majority of funds
Government agencies, DoD laboratories and universities, and Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) may collaborate on proposed research but may not receive NSSEFF funds, directly or via subaward.
Grants to a university may be terminated if the principal investigator (PI) severs connections with the university or is unable to continue active participation in the research. Grants to a university may also be terminated if the university severs connections with the PI.
Eligible Individuals
Faculty with tenure and full-time research staff with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to conduct the proposed research as the principal investigator (PI) are invited to submit an application. Applicants should have a record of substantial scientific contributions.
The PI must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
Other Eligibility Criteria
Number of Applications: The PI may submit only one (1) application in response to this FOA. There is no limit to the number of applications that an institution may submit.
Number of PIs: Only one (1) PI may be designated on the application. While collaborations are encouraged, co-PIs are not permitted.
Resubmissions: Applicants invited to submit full proposals who have submitted Recommendation Letters for the NSSEFF program in a prior year must obtain and submit new letters. Previously submitted letters will not be retrieved. Documents dated prior to the posting date of this FOA will not be accepted.
Cost Sharing
Cost sharing is not expected and will not be used as a factor during the merit review of any proposal hereunder. However, the Government may consider voluntary cost sharing if proposed.
Export Control Laws
Offerors should be aware of recent changes in export control laws. Offerors are responsible for ensuring compliance with all International Traffic in Arms Regulation (ITAR)(22 CFR §120 et. seq.) requirements, as applicable. In some cases, developmental items funded by the Department of Defense are now included on the United States Munition List (USML) and are therefore subject to ITAR jurisdiction. Offerors should address in
their proposals whether ITAR restrictions apply or do not apply, such as in the case when research products would have both civil and military application, to the work they are proposing to perform for ONR. The USML is available online at Additional information regarding the President's Export Control Reform Initiative can be found at (see full announcement for details).
