Funding Opportunities

We regularly maintain this list of federal and non-federal funding opportunities related to energy research. For every opportunity, you will find the title, funding agency, a short description, major application deadline, and a link to the original funding announcement. Researchers can also subscribe to our monthly email newsletter containing the most recent funding opportunities from this list.

Funding Solicitation: The Origin of the Eukaryotic Cell

| Other | Sponsored Research

The Moore Foundation and Simons Foundation are partnering to support novel research on the origin of the eukaryotic cell. This major transition in the history of life, estimated to have occurred almost two billion years ago, remains an important yet unsolved puzzle in the biological sciences. We seek to support the international scientific community to explore why and how this symbiotic event occurred by conducting experiments that illuminate or eliminate possibilities regarding the events that led to the emergence of eukaryotes. 

LG Chem Global Innovation Contest 2019

| Other | Other

This program is a platform for research collaboration designed by LG Chem that will be initiated with novel proposals from universities and research institutions from all over the world. The contest theme includes Energy, Advanced Materials, Bio, Petrochemicals, as well as other areas that need innovative solutions. Winners of this contest will be granted up to $150,000 per year for multi-year research activities and may also have the opportunity to collaborate with our R&D teams. We highly encourage scholars, who have novel ideas to share with us, to apply for GIC 2019.

| U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) | Sponsored Research

The FAA is soliciting proposals for research grants and cooperative agreements to pursue the long-term growth and short-term technical needs of civil aviation.In order to streamline the application process, it is recommended that all prospective grantees submit a white paper (letter of intent) for agency technical review before complete proposal submission.

Transportation & Fuels

U.S. Army power sources, power & data distribution and management

| U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) | Sponsored Research

Emerging operational concepts dictate the need for technology to support extended missions without the benefit of re-supply for 72 hours or longer.

Research interests of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research

| U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) | Sponsored Research

AFOSR plans, coordinates, and executes the Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) basic research program in response to technical guidance from AFRL and requirements of the Air Force. Additionally, the office fosters, supports, and conducts research within Air Force, university, and industry laboratories; and ensures transition of research results to support U.S. Air Force needs.
