Grants to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, IHEs, and for-profits for training, research, and capacity building activities related to climate and environmental sciences. A pre-application must be submitted prior to applying. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support experiential training and mentoring for students, and capacity building activities for institutions, particularly at BIPOC and underrepresented colleges and universities, in partnership with specified national laboratory scientific focus areas.
Reaching a New Energy Sciences Workforce (RENEW) aims to build foundations for Office of Science (SC) research and training at institutions historically underrepresented in the SC research portfolio. RENEW leverages SC’s unique national laboratories, user facilities, and other research infrastructures to provide undergraduate and graduate training opportunities for students and academic institutions not currently well represented in the U.S. science and technology (S&T) ecosystem. The hands-on experiences gained through the RENEW initiative will open new career avenues for the participants, forming a nucleus for a future pool of talented young scientists, engineers, and technicians with the critical skills and expertise needed for the full breadth of SC research activities.
The DOE SC program in BER hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for RENEW grants that will target building capacity in climate and environmental science-relevant programs, particularly at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and minority- serving institutions (MSIs).
Funding may be requested to support experiential training, mentoring, and institutional capacity building activities in partnership with DOE national laboratory Scientific Focus Areas (SFAs) supported within BER’s Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD).
To help provide technical assistance to build capacity and achieve the goal of broadening institutional participation, this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will provide training and research funding for institutions to:
