Limited Submission Notice: DOE FY 2023 Funding for Accelerated, Inclusive Research (FAIR)


US Department of Energy (DOE)


The DOE Office of Science (SC) seeks applications from emerging research institutions to perform basic research in fields supported by SC. The FAIR program aims to build research capacity, infrastructure, and expertise at recipient institutions through mutually beneficial relationships between applicants and DOE national laboratories, SC scientific user facilities, or R1 MSIs (see definition in Important Notes on Requirements below). SC supports fundamental research in applied mathematics, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geoscience, isotope research, materials science, and physics to transform our understanding of nature and catalyze scientific discoveries that can lead to technical breakthroughs. SC does not support applied research, product development, or prototyping.
