Funding Opportunities

For Graduate Students

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

  •  May 16; the goal of SCGSR is to prepare graduate students for science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) careers, by providing graduate thesis research opportunities at DOE laboratories.

For Faculty

Environmental Sustainability (NSF)

  • Oct 20; the goal of this program is to promote sustainable engineered systems that support human well-being and that are also compatible with sustaining natural (environmental) systems. Research areas: industrial ecology, green engineering, ecological engineering, and earth systems engineering.

Energy for Sustainability (NSF)

  • Oct 20; the goal of this program is to support fundamental engineering research that will enable innovative processes for the sustainable production of electricity and fuels, and for energy storage. Processes for sustainable energy production must be environmentally benign, reduce greenhouse gas production, and utilize renewable resources.

Cellular and Biochemical Engineering  (CBE) (NSF)

  •  Oct 20; this program supports fundamental engineering research that advances the understanding of cellular and biomolecular processes in engineering biology and eventually leads to the development of enabling technology for advanced biomanufacturing in support of the therapeutic cells, biochemical, biopharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Engineering of Biomedical Systems  (EBMS) (NSF)

  • Oct 20; the goal of this program is to provide research opportunities to develop novel ideas into discovery-level and transformative projects that integrate engineering and life sciences in solving biomedical problems that serve humanity in the long-term.

Thermal Transport Processes (NSF)

  • Oct 20; the program supports engineering research projects that lay the foundation for new discoveries in thermal transport phenomena. These projects should either develop new fundamental knowledge or combine existing knowledge in thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat and mass transfer to probe new areas of innovation.
