The Department of Energy (DOE) SC program in High Energy Physics (HEP) hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for the DOE Traineeship in Accelerator Science and Engineering, which provides support to programs that will educate and train scientists and engineers capable of performing ground-breaking future research in fields related to the DOE mission. Up to two Cooperative Agreements may be awarded to provide funding to universities or consortia of universities to support tuition, stipend, and travel costs for students enrolled in specific accelerator science and engineering degree programs, and to provide modest support for curriculum development and program administration support. Award terms are expected to be up to five years, with awardees eligible to submit applications for a renewal and a second term. This program does not support generalized lines of Research and Development (R&D) separated from educational and developmental efforts: The purpose of awards resulting from this FOA must be for education and training, which may be conducted through research. Support for accelerator R&D is provided through the HEP General Accelerator R&D and Accelerator Stewardship programs, through accelerator R&D programs elsewhere in DOE, and by other federal agencies.
