Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program

Modified: February 21, 2018
The Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) program is now accepting applications for the 2018 Solicitation 1. Applications are due 5 PM Eastern Time on Tuesday, May 15.

Detailed information about the program, including eligibility requirements and access to the online application system, can be found here.

The SCGSR program supports supplemental awards to outstanding US graduate students to conduct part of their graduate thesis research at a Department of Energy (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 Ph.D. 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 2018 Solicitation 1 cycle, for project periods beginning anytime between October 29, 2018 and March 4, 2019.

For any questions, please contact the SCGSR Program Manager, Dr. Ping Ge, at sc.scgsr@science.doe.gov.
