ONR Funding Sources

Some suggestions of where to locate funding include:

Pre-Proposal Inquiry to ONR by PI

  • ONR encourages telephone inquiries to the technical point-of-contact who most closely matches the proposed research's discipline before a formal proposal is submitted.
  • Short, informal proposals or letters of intent may also be submitted.

Post-Submission Steps

  • The ONR Program Office will review the proposal. The Program Officer will contact the Principal Investigator to discuss the proposal, if necessary.
  • A final decision is made by the Program Office. In some cases, notification is sent to the Principal Investigator with a copy to the Sponsored Projects Office (SPO).
  • The Program Officer assigns Change Request (CR) and Naval Research Information System (NAVRIS) numbers to a proposal that will be recommended for funding. The PR Number is used to track the pending award through the ONR procurement system.

If your research includes animal subjects, please contact the UCSD Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).
