Funding for CSES Projects
CSES Student and Postdoctoral Fellow Program
Funding intervals are based on the federal fiscal year spanning the year from October 1 through September 30 of the following year.
For all projects supported with Los Alamos National Laboratory financial resources, it is imperative (with no exceptions) that the LANL-originated funds issued in a given fiscal year be spent by Close Of Business September 30 of the same fiscal year. That is, funds allocated in one Federal fiscal year can NOT be rolled over into following fiscal years!
No proposal shall be funded for more than three consecutive fiscal years. Renewals/continuations for their second and third years are determined based on availability of funds, progress during the previous year(s) and timely delivery of progress reports.

The projects have a 3 or 6 month duration that cannot span fiscal years. All work must be completed and funds spend by the end of the fiscal year in which the award was made.
