DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

DOE Office of Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) Program

Applications due – May 9


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.


The Office of Science Priority Research Areas for SCGSR Program are:

  • Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR)
  • Basic Energy Sciences (BES)
  • Biological and Environmental Research (BER)
  • Fusion Energy Sciences (FES)
  • High Energy Physics (HEP)
  • Nuclear Physics (NP)

Apply Now- ACS Bridge Program

ACS Bridge Program aims to increase diversity in chemical science graduate education

The American Chemical Society Bridge Program (ACS-BP) assists talented underrepresented minority (URM) students get into and succeed in graduate school. Students who have not applied to graduate school or have applied but were unsuccessful, or would benefit from additional coursework or research experience, are eligible to apply. Students can submit their general graduate school application through the ACS-BP online application system.

Applications will be circulated to selected chemical science departments that are committed to increasing diversity in their departments, at no cost to the students. Please refer any eligible students to; applications are due March 15, 2019.
