DHS will accept only one (1) application for Center Lead from any single university for review.

The DHS S&T Office of University Programs (OUP) is requesting applications from accredited U.S. colleges and universities to lead a consortium of universities for a TPCR COE. OUP is also posting a separate NOFO for eligible applicants to submit single project proposals for consideration as a partner to this COE ( The DHS COEs are university consortia that work closely with DHS Components and their partners to conduct research, develop and transition mission-relevant science and technology, educate the next generation of homeland security technical experts, and train the current workforce in the latest scientific applications. Each COE is led by an accredited U.S. college or university and involves multiple partners for varying lengths of time. The TPCR COE will conduct a range of activities including basic and applied research, and education and training initiatives to support and enhance DHS analytic efforts. DHS seeks research that explores the nature of countering terrorism operations from multiple perspectives including the adversaries’ (threat) and that of Homeland security stakeholders (federal, SLTT government and private sector).
