Funding Tracks

To achieve the Secretary's vision, the Department of Defense (DoD) piloted a number of approaches for engaging the social science community. This multi-pronged strategy enabled the Department to solicit a broad range of proposals from the social science community and to leverage the expertise and infrastructures of a wide range of existing mechanisms for funding basic research.

Minerva used two complementary mechanisms for engaging the social science community.

The Department of Defense (DoD) released a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) in June 2008.

The Department of Defense (DoD) also partnered with the National Science Foundation (NSF) on a solicitation for proposals for Minerva funding in 2008.

Information on both of these funding tracks can be found at the links below.
