The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has asked APLU to forward to you the attached information about their Young Faculty Award (YFA). This award seeks to identify and engage rising starts in junior faculty positions in academia and equivalent positions at non-profit research institutions and expose them to Department of Defense (DoD) and National Security challenges and needs. The YFA will provide high-impact funding to elite researchers early in their careers to develop new research directions in the context of enabling transformative DoD capabilities.

This will be an exciting opportunity for young researchers who might want to focus a significant portion of their future careers on DoD and National Security issues – including agricultural and nutritional security.
