This includes basic equipment for use in research and education, as well as more sophisticated equipment and instrumentation (including software). In addition, although the funding provided under this BAA cannot be used for student support, in order to further DoD’s objective of attracting students to pursue studies leading to STEM careers, applicants must address the impact of the requested equipment and instrumentation on student participation in research.The BAA will contain additional information along with instructions for proposal preparation and submission.
