The U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Nuclear Energy (NE), has released a courtesy copy of draft topic areas to support the fiscal year (FY) 2024 Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) funding opportunity announcement (FOA). The topic areas are still in draft format and are likely to change before final release of the FOA.

 Please be aware that scopes can be changed significantly or can be removed entirely between the time draft topic areas are announced and the final FOA is released. Scopes may change based on a variety of factors which include final NE management review, changes in NE priority, webinar interactions, availability of funds, etc.

 NE anticipates discussing FY 2024 Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) FOA at the annual CINR webinar on May 31. It will also include information on NE's priorities, programs, and other university-focused opportunities. Topic Areas will be discussed in detail after the FOA release.

​In response to feedback from the university community and to better support student recruitment activities, DOE-NE is advancing its University Program application deadlines to better correlate with student recruiting timeframes. 

Accordingly, the FY 2024 CINR and University Program-related webinar will now be held on May 31, 2023. This webinar will address the following topics:

  • Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research FOA, including plan for conducting subsequent “office hours" to review associated draft project work scopes
  • Phase II Continuation FOA for CINR Projects
  • University Program Infrastructure FOAs
  • Distinguished Early Career Program FOA
  • University Nuclear Leadership Program Opportunities
  • Nuclear Science User Facilities Access Opportunities
  • Experimental Capabilities Under Development to support university projects

As noted above, specific topic areas for the FY 2024 CINR Research FOA will be discussed during subsequent NE CINR 'Office Hours', schedule TBD. 

A registration link and webinar schedule will be available on May 22. ​

​The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced $6.3 million in scholarships and fellowships to students pursuing nuclear energy-related degrees across the United States. DOE is awarding 92 scholarships and 32 fellowships to students at 39 colleges and universities. 

Through UNLP, DOE's Office of Nuclear Energy is awarding scholarships of $5,000 to students at two-year institutions who are training in nuclear energy-related fields. Students at four-year institutions will receive scholarships of $10,000, and graduate fellows will receive $169,000 over three years to help pay for graduate studies and research. Fellowships also include $7,000 to fund an internship at a DOE national laboratory or other approved research facility to strengthen the ties between students and DOE's energy research programs.

Since 2009, NE has awarded more than 1,100 scholarships and fellowships to 79 universities/colleges in 32 states.

​The Office of Nuclear Energy (DOE-NE) is publishing a Request for Information  (RFI) soliciting Input on Potential Office of Nuclear Energy Infrastructure Areas for Competitive Opportunities (DE-SOL-0008318) as part of the Office's continually open RFI associated with the Nuclear Energy University Program. The RFI is seeking information, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties to determine what capabilities supporting research, training, and technology demonstrations are of highest interest to the nuclear energy research community. As part of the RFI, DOE-NE is also seeking input on other high priority nuclear energy-related infrastructure needs including information on the potential benefit, location, funding model, and feasibility of establishing, maintaining, and operating such facilities.

DOE-NE is seeking input from the nuclear energy community, including technical and community colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities as well as other Minority Serving Institutions, for its Competitive Research and Development (R&D) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for universities.

The focus of this RFI is to obtain input to and identify potential new research areas for future FOAs in areas that support NE's mission.


DOE-NE is seeking ideas, input, comments, feedback, and recommendations from interested parties for future competitive university-led research projects.

This input may lead to a more robust R&D program that reflects communities' ideas and could identify new creative, innovative, and transformative outcomes. 

DOE-NE also seeks input regarding the structure of the solicitation itself, including any examples of other solicitations that have been successful in utilizing university research.

The RFI is open continuously and the input for consideration in FY 2024 is due May 15, 2023. Responses must be submitted through to be considered.
