DOE announces $400 million in research funding to advance scientific frontiers
WASHINGTON DC- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced a funding opportunity of up to $400 million for basic research in support of DOE’s clean energy, economics, and security goals. national. The funding will advance the priorities of the DOE’s Office of Science and its major programs, including advanced scientific research in computer science, basic energy science, biological and environmental research, fusion energy science, high energies, nuclear physics, R&D and production of isotopes and R&D on accelerators. and Manufacturing. This funding opportunity will help realize the Biden administration’s plan to use science and innovation to address our greatest challenges.
“The DOE Office of Science is reaching new frontiers every day in the fight against climate change and building the industries of the future through solution-oriented research, world-class innovation and hard work. diligent work of America’s best and brightest scientists,” said U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M.

The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), informally known as the “Open Call”, is released annually at the beginning of each fiscal year (FA). It allows the Office of Science to solicit requests for research support in areas not covered by more specific thematic FOAs issued by the office in FY 2023. The FOA, titled “FY 2023 Continuation of Solicitation for the Office of Science Financial Aid Program,” can be found on the Office of Science funding opportunities page.
The DOE’s Office of Science funds research at hundreds of universities nationwide and is the nation’s largest supporter of basic physical science research, the steward of 10 of the DOE’s national laboratories, and the primary federal entity supporting research fundamental to clean energy and security.
