Additional Information on Eligibility
Only U.S. academic institutions are eligible to apply. Other Federal agencies, Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995 are not eligible to apply.

The Principal Investigator must be an untenured Assistant Professor on the tenure track or an untenured Associate Professor on the tenure track at a U.S. academic institution as of the deadline for the application. No more than ten (10) years can have passed between the year the Principal Investigator's Ph.D. was awarded and the year of the deadline for the application. For the present competition, those who received doctorates no earlier than 2003 are eligible.

There can be no co-Principal Investigators.

Each Principal Investigator may only submit one Office of Science Early Career Research Program application per annual competition. Additionally, a Principal Investigator may not participate in more than three Office of Science Early Career Research Program competitions.

Participation in the competition is defined as submission of a full application.

The act of submitting an application implies that the submitting institution has checked, confirmed, and certifies that the Principal Investigator is eligible. No additional certifying documentation is required.

Applications must be submitted through a U.S. academic institution. A companion announcement (LAB 13-958) describes the Early Career Research Program opportunity for full-time DOE national laboratory employees. An employee with a joint appointment between a university and a DOE national laboratory must apply through the institution that pays his or her salary and provides his or her benefits; the eligibility criteria above must also be met.

Eligibility exemptions will not be granted.
