Please use the amended (Amendment 002) Distinguished Early Career Program (DECP) funding opportunity announcement (FOA) provided at this link​.

  • Part III, Section C: Provides language regarding eligibility restrictions between IRP CINR projects and DECP.
  • Part III, Section C: Updates on eligibility restrictions between CINR projects and DECP.
  • Part III, Section C: Clarifies that individuals who have received funds from other comparable early career awards are not eligible for this award.

Due to the recent surge in COVID infections and the resulting disruptions in normal schedules, DOE-NE has extended deadlines to submit applications to the Consolidated Innovative Nuclear Research (CINR) Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and Distinguished Early Career Program (DECP) FOA to February 23, 2022. This extension is in effect for full research and development (R&D), NSUF, and Integrated Research Project application submissions, and Distinguished Early Career Program application submissions.  DOE-NE expects that this will be the only due date extension for these opportunities. (Note: The due date for applications for University Nuclear Leadership Program student scholarships and fellowships remains January 27, 2022.)

In addition to the application deadline extension, the FOAs are being amended to include clarifications to the Checklist to Avoid Common Errors for the CINR FOA and eligibility in the DECP FOA.

Courtesy copies of the FOAs can be found at:
