The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently announced plans to provide $1.5 million for new grants to underrepresented institutions in DOE’s climate, Earth, and environmental science investments. The FOA entitled ‘Research Development and Partnerships Pilot (RDPP)’ will include funding support to develop partnerships with DOE projects at national laboratories and universities, develop plans for capabilities for future research, and leverage the DOE user facilities. Institutions with a history of training students from populations that are under-represented in climate and environmental sciences, such as those served by Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and minority-serving institutions (MSIs), are encouraged to apply. You can find more information in this DOE Office of Science press release.
