NSF released an amended call for proposals for the future of semiconductors (FuSe). The deadline is April 24, 2023.  


The goal of this solicitation is to cultivate a broad coalition of researchers and educators from across science and engineering communities that utilizes a holistic, co-design approach to fundamental research and workforce education and training, to enable rapid progress in new semiconductor technologies. The future of semiconductor manufacturing will require the design and deployment of diverse new technologies in materials, chemical and materials processes, devices, and architectures through the development of application-driven systems.

Partnerships between industry and academic institutions are essential to spur innovation and technology transfer, to inform the research needs, and to train the future workforce.

Industry Partners co-funding this FuSe solicitation:

  • Ericsson 
  • IBM
  • Intel 
  • Samsung

NSF will fund ~ 20 FuSe Research and Education Grants to be awarded as Standard awards or Continuing grants for periods of up to three years and at up to $2M per grant.

DOE announced a limited submission call for basic research on rechargeable batteries to provide foundational knowledge needed to transform and decarbonize our energy system through the development and adoption of cost-effective and clean energy sources. Please see below for more information. 

Here is the limited submission link (due Feb 3rd ): https://research.oregonstate.edu/office-research-advancement/program/doe-energy-innovation-hub-program-research-enable-next

Each year the OSU Women’s Giving Circle funds vital and innovative grants for university programs. Last year, the Women’s Giving Circle awarded more than $70,000 to 11 OSU programs. If you have an idea for a funding opportunity to enhance the OSU undergraduate student experience and improve student retention and the determination to directly impact as many OSU students as possible, consider applying for an OSU Women’s Giving Circle grant by Jan. 9. For more information, visit the Women’s Giving Circle proposal site or contact Sara Dier.

The grant provides funding to adopt, adapt or author an open educational resource, such as a textbook. An open textbook is one that is published under an open copyright license and is made freely available online for students, faculty and the public. All funding is a department-to-department transfer. Please talk to your department head about how this applies to the grant. Questions? Contact OERU Director Stefanie Buck

The OSU Women’s Giving Circle is a group of OSU alumni and friends who pool their gifts to create a fund to support Oregon State University programs. Since 2003, they have supported the university with 178 awards totaling over a million dollars. They are seeking applications for programs and projects which enhance the OSU undergraduate student experience and improve student retention. The average grant amount is $5,000-$10,000. 

Applications may be submitted from any organization, college, department, center, or campus that are relevant to Oregon State University including the OSU Cascades Campus, 4-H, and Extension. The application deadline has been extended to Monday, January 9, 2023 at 9 a.m. Applications, additional criteria, and further information can be found at fororegonstate.org/wgc_grant or by contacting the Women’s Giving Circle staff liaison, Sara Dier.

Dear OSU Graduate Faculty,

As part of an ongoing strategic partnership with the Pacific Northwest National Lab (PNNL), the OSU Graduate School is pleased to announce that applications for the 2023 PNNL-OSU Distinguished Graduate Research Program (DGRP) are open effective today.

The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory – Oregon State University Distinguished Graduate Research Program (PNNL-OSU DGRP) is a four-year opportunity designed to provide collaborative research and training to OSU graduate students. Students selected to participate in the program will benefit from having the expertise of graduate committee members from both organizations and access to the world-class research infrastructure at OSU and PNNL. The DGRP is a four-year program in which years one and two are funded by OSU, namely through department or faculty grants. During years three and four, PNNL will fund the student’s stipend and benefits, the OSU Graduate School will provide a tuition waiver, and the student will be primarily located at PNNL. An essential requirement of the program is that the co-advisors from the OSU and PNNL must be willing to support the student in the proposed collaboration research topic. Additionally, the OSU advisor must be on a full-time faculty appointment. 

The Graduate School is soliciting applications to the 2023 PNNL-OSU DGRP cohort. Nominees must be first year or second year Ph.D. students in STEM and related science and engineering disciplines at OSU. We are particularly interested in attracting outstanding students that represent the existing and emerging areas of collaboration with PNNL. A maximum of five students will be selected for 2023 cohort.

Since OSU’s Ph.D. programs have a variety of recruiting and admission timelines, we have set the priority deadline for applications to the DGRP as February 20, 2023. Interested faculty should identify a potential student applicant, PNNL collaborator, and complete the online application. Eligibility requirements, award details, and the nomination procedure are available on the Graduate School website at https://gradschool.oregonstate.edu/awards/pnnl-osu

If you have any questions, please email DGRP@oregonstate.edu.

Do you have faculty at Oregon State​ who might be interested in submitting a short proposal to these opportunities?

I wanted to highlight several packaging opportunities in particular, with funding ranging up to $100,000 (with potential follow-on). Those have received the fewest proposals so far.

My best,


All active partnering opportunities on Halo (Deadline 11/30):

Just an FYI about possible funding resources for Indigenous students from OR tribes! The Oregon Tribal Student Grant provides full funding for students who are enrolled members of any of the 9 federally recognized tribes in Oregon. Deadline for winter term funding: Nov. 1st!

Applications are Still Being Accepted for the Oregon Tribal Student Grant 

The HECC Office of Student Access  and Completion will continue to accept and review applications for the Oregon Tribal Student Grant for 2022-23 until funds are exhausted. Students planning to attend college in the 2022-23 academic  year, including fall term, are encouraged to apply.  The Oregon Tribal Student Grant is expected to pay for most or all public undergraduate college-related expenses—including tuition, housing, books, and other costs not covered by other grants—for eligible students who are enrolled members of Oregon’s nine federally recognized Tribes. Current and prospective students can learn more and apply here. The direct link to the Oregon Tribal Student Grant web page is: https://oregonstudentaid.gov/grants/oregon-tribal-student-grant/

Our Talent Acquisition team has suggested that we recruit in the fall to get the best students for our internships. Offers will be extended as we meet qualified applicants. Therefore, we encourage students to apply early while the maximum number of internships are available.

We will be on-campus to present on our 2023 internship opportunities at the Food and Fermentation Science Club meeting on November 9th. That event will be held in the Wiegand Hall Auditorium (115) from 5-6pm. I’ve attached a flyer for that event. Please share this with your students.  We will follow-up with Meet & Greets on November 10th in Wiegand Hall. Folks interested in learning more about our internships and/or Gallo opportunities in general can sign up to meet with our on-campus recruiting team. Sign-ups can be made through Calendly or please contact Deborah Gould (Deborah.Gould@oregonstate.edu). The Food Science and Technology Department has graciously provided rooms for these events, yet we hope to see students from various majors.

Please let me know if you or the students have questions. 

Thank you!
