DOE’s Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (DOE EPSCoR) has announced its interest in receiving applications from eligible jurisdictions for Implementation Grants. The applications are sought for research in key science and technology areas related to DOE missions as limited by the specific language of the linked Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

Note that there is a listing of areas of either specific interest or disinterest under the section labelled Supplementary Information. Please review this list carefully when considering preparation of a potential application. Assessment of responsiveness to the requirements of the FOA will be part of the review of the required pre-applications. Non-responsive pre-applications will be not be permitted to submit an application. In addition, a comparative review of pre- applications by program managers will be used to determine the most competitive pre- applications for encouragement of application submissions.

Grants awarded under this program are intended to improve research capability through the support of a group of scientists and engineers, including graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, working on a common scientific theme in one or more than one EPSCoR jurisdictions. These awards are not appropriate mechanisms to provide support for individual faculty science and technology research projects.

While the academic, non-profit and industrial research community is welcome to lead or to participate in applications, a strong component of graduate student education is required for all applicants. DOE EPSCoR currently follows eligibility determinations made by the NSF EPSCoR Program.
