CGS and Science Community Call for $8.1 Billion for DOE-Office of Science

The Energy Sciences Coalition recently sent a letter to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees to encourage an appropriation of at least $8.1 billion in Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 for the Department of Energy’s Office of Science. The letter states, “As the nation’s primary sponsor of physical sciences research, DOE Office of Science plays a vital role in the American scientific ecosystem and is a proven model for success in discovery and innovation. The DOE Office of Science sponsors research programs vital to American prosperity and security at research universities and national laboratories and helps maintain the U.S. pipeline of science and engineering talent.”

The DOE Office of Science has seven major program offices that fund core research that benefit graduate students. They also administer the Computational Sciences Graduate Fellowship through the Advanced Scientific Computing Research program office and the Graduate Student Research Program through the Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists.
