DoE Office of Science Announces Changes to Proposal Formats
Proposal submissions to the Department of Energy Office of Science (DoE SC) now require the use of the format approved by the National Science Foundation (NSF), which may be generated by the Science Experts Network Curriculum Vita (SciENcv).
NSF’s updated guidelines (PAPPG 20-1) took effect October 5, 2020, incorporating significant changes to the biosketch and current and pending document requirements. Faculty interested in NSF or DoE SC funding must use the required formats for these documents on all proposals. This requirement applies to all senior project roles. Principal investigators (PI) should review the new requirements and begin the information transfer process as soon as possible.
Record Year for UT Grad Students Earning Awards to Work at National Labs
Four UT graduate students have received Science Graduate Student Research (SCGSR) awards. This is the highest number of SCGSR awardees UT has had in one year.
SCGSR, a program of the US Department of Energy’s Office of Science, grants supplemental awards to graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields who demonstrate potential for advancing scholarship and innovation in areas critical to the Office of Science’s mission. The goal of the program is to better prepare students for scientific and technical careers.
Since its inception in 2014, the SCGSR program has provided support to more than 370 graduate awardees from more than 120 different universities to conduct thesis research at 18 DOE national laboratories and facilities across the nation. Seventeen of those awards have gone to UT students, making the university a national leader in terms of number of SCGSR awards received.
