- Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Science - The Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2016 Solicitation 1. Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found at: http://science.energy.gov/wdts/scgsr/. The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding US graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE national laboratory 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 SCGSR program is open to current PhD students in qualified graduate programs at accredited US academic institutions, who are conducting their graduate thesis research in targeted areas of importance to the DOE Office of Science. 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 supplemental award provides for additional, incremental costs for living and travel expenses directly associated with conducting the SCGSR research project at the DOE host laboratory during the award period. The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2016 Solicitation 1, for project periods beginning anytime between November 1, 2016 and February 28, 2017. Applications are due 5:00pm ET on Wednesday May 11, 2016. For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
