The US Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Office of Fossil Energy (FE) has announced up to US$5 million in federally funded financial assistance for research and development projects under the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) DE-FOA-0002398, ‘University Training and Research for Fossil Energy Applications’. This funding opportunity will encompass two separate university programmes, each with its own requirements and each with specific eligibility requirements. The two programs are University Coal Research (UCR) Programme and Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions (HBCU-OMI) Programme.

The National Energy Technology will manage the projects, which will support DOE’s Crosscutting Research Program and facilitate long-term, high-risk fundamental research that advances the science of coal technologies at eligible US colleges and universities. The projects supported by the UCR and HBCU-OMI programmes enable segments of the college population not typically tapped for educational research to advance their technical skills.
