UC Laboratory Fees Research Program

Engaging UC faculty and graduate student researchers with national laboratory scientists, facilities and resources.

Program Announcement: Postponement of the 2015 UC Lab Fees Research Program RFP release

The UC Lab Fees Research Program is funded by a portion of the fees the University receives for its management of the Los Alamos and Lawrence Livermore National Labs. Due to a reduction in the fees earned by the University in 2014, the UC Lab Fees Research Program is unable to issue a Call for Applications in the Spring of 2015. This postponement does not affect current awardees. Currently funded LFRP projects may retain their awarded funding (contingent on adequate progress and reporting compliance). We look forward to providing a new research funding opportunity as soon as funding permits, and the RFP will be widely disseminated once available. Please check this website for program updates.

About the program:

The UC Lab Fees Research Program enhances partnerships between UC researchers and laboratory scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). These grants promote the development of projects and collaborations which can help advance the missions of the national laboratories at UC.

Goals & funding priorities:

  • Support collaborative research between UC faculty and Laboratory scientists.
  • Support UC graduate students in programs that promote interaction between Laboratory scientists and UC graduate programs.
  • Support research that takes advantage of unique Laboratory facilities, especially involving students.
  • Support research in the physical, life, or social sciences, or in the humanities, on topics aligned with the mission of the laboratories.

Highlights of this program can be found in the program brochure (pdf). For additional details, please see the Request for Proposals from the 2012 program cycle (pdf).
