DOD – Air Force
The Fiscal Year 2023 Air Force Young Investigator Research Program (YIP) intends to support scientists and engineers early in their careers who have received a Ph.D. or equivalent degrees by 1 April 2015 or later and who show exceptional ability and promise for conducting basic research. The program objective is to foster creative basic research in science and engineering; enhance early career development of outstanding young investigators; and increase opportunities for the young investigator to recognize the Air Force and Space Force mission and related challenges in science and engineering. YIP PIs must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident. Most YIP awards are funded up to $150,000 per year for three years, for a total of $450,000. Each three-year budget must not exceed $150,000; regardless if the total budget is $450,000.
