Funding Opportunity from the Office of Research Development

DoE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.  The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources, and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories.

The applicants to the SCGSR Program must be pursuing graduate research in an area that is aligned with one or more of the Priority Research Areas for the SCGSR 2014 Competition ( The applicant’s proposed SCGSR research project to be conducted at DOE laboratory must address stated aims in at least one of the Priority Research Areas listed below. 

I. Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)
(a) Applied Mathematics
(b) Computer Science

II. Basic Energy Sciences (BES)
(a) Accelerator and Detector R&D
(b) Heavy Element Radiochemistry
(c) Neutron Scattering Research and Instrumentation
(d) Predictive Materials Science and Chemistry

III. Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
(a) Computational Biology and Bioinformatics
(b) Plant Breeding Science for Sustainable Bioenergy
(c) Environmental System Science

IV. Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
