U.S. Coal Research Program grants awardedadmin
The U.S. Department of Energy says six projects will receive nearly $2.4 million in funding under its University Coal Research Program.
The program, in its 28th year, is the department’s longest-running student-teacher research grant initiative. It has directed nearly $122 million in coal-related research, involving about 1,750 science studies and their professors working on more than 700 federally funded research projects.
The projects selected this year will focus on technologies in three areas: instrumentation, computational energy sciences, and materials sciences.
The six projects, all to be performed during a 36-month period, were awarded to the University of Central Florida, the Georgia Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, the University of Notre Dame, and the University of California-San Diego.
