The Department of Energy’s Office of Science announced that the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2017 Solicitation 2.

Apply by 5 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 16, 2017 and find detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system.

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 to 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 doctoral students in qualified graduate programs at accredited U.S. 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/dissertation while providing access to the expertise, resources and capabilities available at the host DOE laboratories/facilities. 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/facility during the award period.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 50 awards in 2017 Solicitation 2, for project periods beginning anytime between Monday, June 4, 2018 and Monday, October 1, 2018.

Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to over 250 graduate awardees from more than 100 different universities to conduct thesis research at 17 DOE national laboratories across the nation.

The SCGSR program is sponsored and managed by the DOE Office of Science’s Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS), in collaboration with the six Office of Science research programs offices and the DOE national laboratories/facilities, and program administration support is provided by the Oak Ridge Institute of Science and Education (ORISE).
