Comparative Review

The annual HEP Comparative Review solicitation is for new or renewal proposals that are in direct support of research. For more information and access to the current or most recent Comparative Review FOA, please go to the HEP Funding Opportunities web page.

It is strongly recommended that proposals addressing specific HEP research or technology development activities that formerly were submitted to the Office of Science Annual Solicitation be now submitted to either HEP's annual Comparative Review FOA and/or to the annual Office of Science Early Career Research Program FOA. Note that these solicitation are not open year round.

Supplemental proposals in support of HEP research should be submitted to the Annual Solicitation, as previously done. Conference proposals should be submitted through the Annual Solicitation as new proposals. Please see Conference Guidelines.

For a complete description of the types of Office of Science funding opportunity announcements, corresponding guidelines and requirements, and how to apply for a financial assistance award, please view the Office of Science’s Funding Opportunities web page.
