UPDATED: Limited Submission Notice: Scientific Infrastructure Support for Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (FY24)


US Department of Energy (DOE)


  •  Under this Funding Opportunity Announcement area, applications can be submitted for equipment, software, instrumentation, and associated non-reactor upgrade requests that support nuclear energy related R&D or education.
  •  Funding requests may include, but are not limited to, equipment and instrumentation for specialized facilities, classrooms, and teaching laboratories, and non-reactor Nuclear Science & Engineering  research.
  • Infrastructure requests that support the sharing and use of equipment and instrumentation by multiple campuses of a university, multiple universities, or with national laboratories are encouraged.

For more information, view the full Fiscal Year 2024 Scientific Infrastructure Support for  Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research solicitation


Average award will be approximately $250,000 for the total project period. Project Period is 1 year and 2 months beginning August 1, 2024.

Limited Submission Requirements and Timeline:

One (1) application per institution is permitted.

Only proposals approved by the Division of Research and Economic Development may be submitted to this program. For such approval, Principal Investigators (PIs) must first submit a two–page white paper to by Monday, July 10, 2023.

  • White papers will be evaluated based on the below and should include:
  • Outline the objectives of the project
  • Describe how the proposed work is relevant to the Office of Nuclear Energy mission and the potential of the requested equipment, instrumentation, or modification to facilitate, improve, or expand ongoing NE research and training capabilities
  • Demonstrate the capability of the team to implement the full scope of the project
  • Describe uses of the equipment for education and research purposes
  • Indicate space, facility and safety requirements for the equipment

If selected to submit a full proposal, PIs must ensure that proposals meet all requirements stated in the RFP, in the announcement, and in the implementing laws and regulations related to this grant program.

Key Submission Dates:

  • 7/10/2023 – White paper due to We encourage you to cc your Dean for visibility as well.
  • 7/24/2023 – Anticipated date Internal Awardees Notified
  • 8/17/2023 – Full proposal due to OSP
  • 8/24/2023 by 3pm – Full proposal due to DOE

Important Note on Requirements:

Cost matching is required on a 1:1 dollar match for requested amounts more than $250,000 for applications under the GSI area. A $300,000 project is proposed, cost matching requirements apply to $50,000 of this amount (the amount over $250,000), and the recipient would be required to contribute $25,000.

Principal Investigators will be required to work with a Pre-Award Research Administrator to develop a draft budget (including cost share details, if required).  This will be needed for the committee to make decisions about what to select for submission. Approval does not indicate support for potential cost share costs.
