FY24 MURI Funding Opportunities Now Available!

By Toni DeVille

The Office of Naval Research (ONR), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), and U.S. Army DEVCOM Army Research Laboratory's Army Research Office (ARO) have released their funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) for the fiscal year 2024 Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI).

For more than 30 years, the prestigious MURI program has been supporting teams of researchers from diverse disciplines to collaborate on investigating basic research questions of critical import to the DoD. Teams are awarded up to $7.5 M over five years to conduct their research. MURI awardees have gone on to create companies, establish new fields of inquiry, and lay the groundwork for some of the DoD’s most cutting-edge technologies.

This year’s FOA includes such topics as Complexity Science Disorder-Promoted Synchronization, Plasmon-Controlled Single-Atom Catalysis, and The Ecological Succession of Environmental Films at the Gas-Solid Interface. 

Six topics are also eligible for an additional $1.5 M in funding over five years to MURI teams incorporating minority-serving institutions such as Historically Black College and Universities (HBCUs). 

Find the FOAs for all three Services by searching “MURI” on or following these links: AFOSR, ARO, ONR.
