work supported by DOE and carried out by the DOE laboratories, institutes of higher education (IHE), and the private sector generally requires advanced graduate level training.

Historically, the Department’s primary mechanism for supporting the training of graduate students has been through the inclusion in standard research awards to IHE and DOE laboratories.

This FOA will establish DOE-sponsored IHE-led traineeships as a mechanism for graduate-level training critical to DOE mission-driven workforce needs.

This will be accomplished through a focused academic graduate program that delivers unique, innovative curriculum, coupled with a rigorous thesis or dissertation research requirement, in the desired DOE-relevant scientific or technical discipline(s).

The DOE-sponsored IHE-led traineeships will strategically address identified STEM workforce training needs in the area of radiochemistry.

The total Government funding available for any single award under this FOA shall not exceed $3M over five (5) years, subject to availability of funds.
