Research for Defense Education Faculty (R-DEF)

The Research for Defense Education Faculty (R-DEF) mission is to increase DoD social science expertise by investing in the defense experts who teach our future military and national security leaders at professional military education (PME) institutions and military service academies. R-DEF awards offer existing PME teaching faculty the resources and time to conduct scholarly research on Minerva topics of interest.

Details on the 2017 R-DEF competition will be available in late February.
