S&T seeks to support foundational research that contributes to advancing the state of the science through novel, nuanced, innovative and rigorous scientific inquiry using diverse and non-traditional strategies. This notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) aims to:

1.    Conduct basic and applied research to improve our understanding of how and why individuals radicalize to violence, mobilize to violence, and disengage from violence using diverse and non-traditional research strategies from a multi-disciplinary perspective.

2.    Understand the efficacy of non-government, online interventions to prevent, deter, or otherwise mitigate negative outcomes and harms related to online behaviors as they are related to Homeland Security missions. Please note that any activities conducted for research purposes must include an independent and objective evaluation component to understand outcomes and, if possible, impacts of interventions that are measurable and repeatable.

3.    Ensure key stakeholders such as federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial partners, community-based organizations, violence prevention practitioners, and members of the public have the knowledge and tools required to support the implementation of effective prevention and intervention programming.

Submission Process

Limited submissions MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research.

If interested in applying for this opportunity, email a two-page project abstract. Include at top the project title, PI, and list of key collaborators and a 2-3 page CV/biosketch for the PI (SCiENcv preferred) by the INTERNAL DEADLINE above to Julie Morris at
