Energy Frontier Research Centers are one of DOE’s leading center-level competitions and well-suited for research universities. EFRCs are typically funded from $2 million to $4 million each per year over four years and there are no cost share requirements. The EFRC program focuses on energy-relevant, basic research with a scope and complexity beyond what is possible in standard single-investigator or small-group awards. These multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional centers accelerate scientific discovery and tackle transformative energy grand challenges in materials sciences, chemical sciences, geosciences, and biosciences. Applications are encouraged from Minority-Serving Institutions and is reflected in the scoring matrix for this opportunity. This is a limited submission opportunity; please check the university’s limited submission page for internal due dates.
