Abstract : This program is for follow-on research efforts for the participants in the Summer Faculty Research Program. Funding is provided to establish RIP awards to about half the number of participants in the SFRP. Participants in the 1990 SFRP competed for funding under the 1990 RIP. Evaluation of the proposals were made by the contractor. Evaluation criteria consisted of: (1). Technical excellence of the proposal (2). Continuation of the SFRP effort (3). Cost sharing by the university. The list of proposals selected for award was forwarded to AFOSR for approval of funding and for research efforts to be completed by 31 December 1991. The following summarizes the events for the evaluation of proposals and award of funding under the RIP.(A). RIP proposals were submitted to the contractor by 1 November 1991. The proposals were limited to S20,000 plus cost sharing by the universities. The universities were encouraged to cost share, since this is an effort to establish a long term effort between the Air Force and the university. (B). Proposals were evaluated on the criteria listed above and the final award approval was given by AFOSR after consultation with the Air Force Laboratories. (C). Subcontracts were negotiated with the Universities. There were a total of 92 RIP awards made under the 1990 program.
