The U.S. Army Research Office (ARO) together with the National Security Agency (NSA) is soliciting proposals to develop new quantum computing algorithms for hard computational problems, develop insights into the power of quantum computation, and consider issues of quantum complexity and computability. The funding opportunity is available to institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations and for-profit concerns. Multiple awards are expected with each one continuing for 3 years. Proposals are expected to request less than $750K over the three-year period but exceptional proposals beyond this limit may be considered. The deadline to submit a white paper is June 5, 2019 and the deadline for submitting a full proposal is August 1, 2019.
