Funds Awarded to Historically Black Colleges and Universities for Fossil Energy Research
The U.S. Department of Energy has selected four research projects that will provide educational and research training opportunities for minority students while advancing key technical areas in fossil fuel utilization.
The annual funding opportunity titled Support of Advanced Fossil Resource Utilization Research by Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions (HBCU/OMI), recently announced awards to institutions under the HBCU/OMI designation. This DOE funding supports an important initiative by providing opportunities to students at minority institutions for meaningful research that contributes to the mission of DOE’s Office of Fossil Energy and the National Energy Technology Laboratory. This funding also supports the development of high-risk fundamental and applied research that advances the safe and environmentally responsible use of fossil fuels.
