Funding Opportunities

This page contains links and information about ASCR related Funding Opportunities Announcements (FOA) and Program Announcements. ASCR funds unique and innovative research through academic, the private sector and other non-profit organizations as well as government labs. ASCR develops ideas for research programs, which are germane to the mission of DOE, and issues solicitations requesting proposals from researchers. ASCR publishes solicitations for each research program and the solicitations are published on the Grants.govExternal link website. The selection of researchers to fund is based on a competitive evaluation of the proposals submitted under each solicitation. For the most current information on notices, see the DOE Grants and Contracts Website. This page only shows the original posting dates, changes in due dates are not tracked.
