FY 2017 Continuation of Solicitation for the Office of Science Financial Assistance Program
DOE - Department of Energy (DE-FOA-0001664)
- Proposal: 12/08/2017
- Amount: Up to $400,000 per year
The Office of Science (SC) of the Department of Energy hereby announces its continuing
interest in receiving grant applications for support of work in the following program areas:
- Advanced Scientific Computing Research
- Basic Energy Sciences
- Biological and Environmental Research
- Fusion Energy Sciences
- High Energy Physics
- Nuclear Physics.
The Office of Science’s (SC) mission is to deliver scientific discoveries and major scientific
tools to transform our understanding of nature and advance the energy, economic, and national
security of the United States. SC is the Nation’s largest Federal sponsor of basic research in the
physical sciences and the lead Federal agency supporting fundamental scientific research for our
Nation’s energy future.
The Office of Science accomplishes its mission and advances national goals by supporting:
- The frontiers of science—discovering nature’s mysteries from the study of fundamental
subatomic particles, atoms, and molecules that are the building blocks of the materials of
our universe and everything in it to the DNA, proteins, and cells that are the building
blocks of life. Each of the programs in the SC supports research probing the most
fundamental disciplinary questions.
- The 21st Century tools of science—providing the Nation’s researchers with 27 state-ofthe-art
national scientific user facilities, the most advanced tools of modern science
propelling the U.S. to the forefront of science, technology development and deployment
- Science for energy and the environment―advancing a clean energy agenda through
fundamental research on energy production, conversion, storage, transmission, and use by
advancing our understanding of the earth and its climate. Targeted investments include
three DOE Bioenergy Research Centers (BRCs), the Energy Frontier Research Centers
(EFRCs), two Energy Innovation Hubs, and atmospheric process and climate modeling
The application due date extended through December 8, 2017 to coincide with the current Continuing Resolution which funds the Government through December 8, 2017.
