Letters of Support

Letters of Support may be requested whenever an external Partner is applying for funding and wants Fermilab to be a subcontractor on the award or wants Fermilab’s opinion on the scientific merits of the proposal. Signed Letters of Support let the partner know that Fermilab is willing to allocate resources for the Partner’s effort. Most requests for Letters of Support are driven by the DOE SBIR/STTR Funding Opportunity Announcements.

Letters of Support may be issued to:

  • SBIR/STTR Partners
  • Other Partners where Fermilab will be a subcontractor or sub-awardee
  • Partners who seek a Fermilab scientific opinion on the merit of the proposal
