It is unknown if Department of Energy (DOE) Experimental Program for the Stimulation of Competitive Research (EPSCoR) will be releasing a solicitation for FY 16 allocation; however, in order to prepare a competitive and peer reviewed proposal, Nevada EPSCoR is initiating a call for proposals in preparation for the next Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).
If DOE EPSCoR releases a FY 16 FOA, Nevada would be eligible for a three-year Implementation Award. It is anticipated that the DOE EPSCoR award would provide a maximum award level of $2.5 million per year and an anticipated minimum $1 million per year for a project period of three years (as per the FY14 FOA). Most likely there will be a requirement of a 10% commitment from a DOE Program Office requested to support the proposed effort. Deadline: Thursday, February 18, 2016
