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
    through innovation.
  • 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

Application due date extended through January 31, 2018
