Additional Information on Eligibility: DOE EPSCoR follows NSF EPSCoR RII Program eligibility determinations. As a result, and in accordance with 2 CFR 910.126, competition, eligibility for award is restricted. Domestic applicants within the following jurisdictions will be eligible for this FOA: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Virgin Islands, West Virginia, and Wyoming. All research supported by an EPSCoR award must be performed in an EPSCoR jurisdiction or at a DOE national laboratory. Funding support for the prime applicant and any potential subawardees is limited to those with addresses within one or more EPSCoR jurisdictions. Funding of foreign entities is not permitted for this FOA. Non-profit organizations and for-profit applicants from EPSCoR jurisdictions may apply but must include academic institutions from EPSCoR jurisdictions as part of their team. For-profit applicants must include a letter from a responsible member of the applicant’s management committing that the location of the research as well as the staff participating for this application will be within one of the eligible jurisdictions. Industrial and for-profit organizations should note that if research is proposed in support of current commercial activity the application may be declined without merit review. If a team collaboration involving more than one organization collaborating with one or more national laboratories is envisaged, then one member institution of the team shall serve as the lead and other members of the collaborating team at other institutions may request support through sub-awards. All types of applicants are eligible to apply, except Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995. As noted previously, an applicant may not propose providing funding to DOE national laboratories or other FFRDCs nor propose subcontracts to institutions in non-EPSCoR jurisdictions. Other Federal agencies are not eligible to receive financial assistance awards and are therefore ineligible to submit applications.

Description: The U. S. Department of Energy's Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for building EPSCoR-State/DOE-National Laboratory Partnerships. These partnerships are to advance fundamental, early-stage energy research collaborations with the DOE national laboratories. (Information on the DOE National Laboratories including links to websites can be found at http://www.energy.gov/about-national-labs.) Participation by graduate students and/or postdoctoral fellows is required. Junior faculty from EPSCoR jurisdictions are encouraged to apply. Utilization of DOE user facilities is encouraged. (Information on the SC User Facilities can be found at https://science.osti.gov/User-Facilities/User-Facilities-at-a-Glance, information on the DOE Office of Nuclear Energy user facilities can be found at https://nsuf.inl.gov). Applicants are advised of the following areas of additional interest: Quantum Information Science, Microelectronics, Data Science/Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence, Energy Storage, and Plastics Recycling. DOE EPSCoR currently follows eligibility determinations made by the National Science Foundation EPSCoR for its Research Infrastructure Improvement (RII) Program. As a result, entities located within the following jurisdictions will be eligible to apply under this FOA: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Guam, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Virgin Islands, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
