USAF Summer Faculty Fellowship Program (USAF-SFFP)

The SFFP offers fellowships to university faculty to conduct research at one of the Air Force research facilities in the summer. The objectives of the Summer Faculty Fellowship Program are to:
  1. stimulate professional relationships among SFFP fellows and the scientists and engineers in AFRL Technical Directorates and other Air Force research facilities;
  2. elevate the awareness in the U.S. academic community of Air Force research needs and foster continued research at SFFP fellows' institutions; and
  3. provide the faculty opportunities to perform high-quality research at AFRL Technical Directorates and other Air Force research facilities.
SFFP fellows conduct research in collaboration with Air Force researchers for a continuous summer period of eight to twelve weeks at the Technical Directorates of the Air Force Research Laboratory, the US Air Force Academy, or the Air Force Institute of Technology.
A final report is required at the completion of the summer appointment.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents and have an earned Ph.D. in science or engineering. Fellows must be eligible for access to unclassified government information systems; the fellowship award is subject to a successful background review and visit authorization that includes approved access to an Air Force installation and its laboratory facilities.

Fellows are awarded in different categories including both early career investigator and senior investigator. The stipend is based on the category. Each SFFP award is for one summer. The SFFP fellow may reapply for up to two additional summers, for a maximum of three summer awards. Starting in Fiscal Year 2010, selected fellows may bring a graduate student with them to assist in research on their assignment.
