Department of Energy Graduate Research Program - 5/9 deadline

The Department of Energy's (DOE) Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2019 Solicitation 1. The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory / facility in collaboration with a DOE laboratory scientist for a period of 3 - 12 consecutive months with the goal of preparing graduate students for scientific and technical careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission.

The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students' overall doctoral thesis / dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories / facilities. Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 410 graduate awardees from more than 120 different U.S. universities to conduct thesis research at 18 DOE national laboratories and facilities across the nation.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2019 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between October 28, 2019 and March 2, 2020.
