The U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science is now accepting applications for the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program

The goal of the Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers critically important to the DOE Office of Science mission, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.  The SCGSR program provides supplemental awards to outstanding U.S. graduate students to pursue part of their graduate thesis research at a DOE laboratory/facility in areas that address scientific challenges central to the Office of Science mission. 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/facilities.

They are ​particularly looking for applicants in the following 4 new transdisciplinary research areas including Microelectronics, Data Science, Fundamental Symmetries, and Accelerator Science.

The Office of Science expects to make approximately 95 awards in 2020 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between November 9, 2020 and March 1, 2021. Details about the program, research areas, and online application can be found here.

The application deadline has been extended to 5:00pm Eastern Time on May 20, 2020

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge.
