Applicants must find the BAA that list research areas that relate to your discipline/area of research. The Research Proposal should reflect your field of study as well as connect with one off the BAA’s.
In the application, there is a section where you will list the BAA number (not name of the BAA), and the name of the research area you select. Additionally, if you are interested in the international research area, that is okay. Generally, the rule is, if it’s listed under one of the BAA’s, and it is an open and current BAA, applicants can write their proposal in that area.
Please list the BAA number. For example, N00014-18-S-B001, W911NF-17-S-0002-03. Sometimes this number is found on the cover page of the BAA or in the Footer. This number identifies which BAA announcement you are using. Under the announcements there are different projects or research areas with titles i.e. Chemical Sciences, Energy Transport and Storage, Human Dimension and so on. Please list the title of the research area your proposal will support. This is to ensure you are responding to one of the BAAs. There is also a field on the application to incorporate a title for your proposal.
AFOSR continues to expand the horizon of scientific knowledge through its leadership and management of the Air Force's basic research program. As a vital component of the Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), AFOSR's mission is to support Air Force goals of control and maximum utilization of air, space, and cyberspace.
AFOSR accomplishes its mission by investing in basic research efforts for the Air Force in relevant scientific areas. Central to AFOSR's strategy is the transfer of the fruits of basic research to industry, the supplier of Air Force acquisitions; to the academic community which can lead the way to still more accomplishment; and to the other directorates of AFRL that carry the responsibility for applied and development research leading to acquisition.
More details about how AFOSR accomplishes it's mission can be found in the Technical Strategic Plan
