DOE Announces Awards for EPSCoR Projects

This week the Department of Energy announced $21 million for projects through the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). The new projects are distributed to colleges and universities in 18 states and Puerto Rico and span a wide range of energy research topics. A list of awardees can be found here.

“The EPSCoR program is a long-standing and critical pillar in the Department of Energy’s efforts to ensure that all regions and institutions, particularly those that have been historically underrepresented in Federal research funding programs, are engaged in competitive, impactful, clean-energy-relevant research,” said Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, Director of the DOE Office of Science, in a press release. “The projects selected for awards will help to build expertise and capabilities at the EPSCoR institutions and will strengthen their connections to the wealth of capabilities at the DOE national laboratories.”
