The ONR seeks proposals for developing innovative solutions that directly support the development and maintenance of a robust STEM workforce.
The goal of any proposed effort should be to provide "game changing" solutions that will establish and maintain a diverse pipeline of U. S. citizens who
are interested in uniformed or civilian DoN (or Navy and Marine Corps) STEM related workforce opportunities.
While this announcement is relevant for any stage of the STEM pipeline, for FY15, funding efforts will be targeted primarily towards High School, Post-Secondary education, and outreach designed to enhance the DoN (or Naval) STEM workforce and its mission readiness.
Emphasis will be given both to key engineering and scientific areas outlined in the Naval S&T Strategic Plan such as our National Naval Responsibilities (see ONR website), and to identified STEM related workforce gaps and new strategic goals on the uniformed and civilian side.
The FULL ANNOUNCEMENT is available on the Grants.gov website.
