Funding Opportunity: Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research Implementation Grants (EPSCoR)

December 2022

The DOE Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) announces its interest in receiving new and renewal applications from applicants within eligible jurisdictions for Implementation Grants. DOE follows the National Science Foundation’s eligibility criteria for EPSCoR. Grants awarded under this program are intended to improve research capability through the support of a group of scientists and engineers, including undergraduate students, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows, working on a common scientific theme in one or more 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 communities are welcome to lead or to participate in applications, a strong component of student education in research is required for all applicants.

Please see the funding opportunity for agency contacts and more details, including eligibility and application information.
