December 11, 2023

The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) Program hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for Building EPSCoR-State/DOE-National Laboratory Partnerships. These partnerships advance the understanding of the physical world by supporting fundamental, early-stage energy research collaborations with DOE National Laboratories.

Participation by undergraduate students, graduate students, or postdoctoral fellows is required. Early career faculty from EPSCoR jurisdictions are encouraged to apply, and utilization of DOE user facilities is encouraged.

Information on the DOE’s Office of Science User Facilities can be found by visiting the Office of Science’s website, and information on the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy user facilities can be found on the Nuclear Science User Facilities website.

DOE EPSCoR follows the U.S. National Science Foundation’s (NSF) EPSCoR Program eligibility determinations. Please see the funding opportunity for agency contacts, eligibility, and more details.

A webinar will be held to provide information on the EPSCoR Funding Opportunity Announcement on December 18, 2023, at 3 p.m. Eastern.
