Grants to USA and territories higher education institutions to support research by undergraduate and graduate students addressing public health and environmental challenges. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Research in the following areas of interest is invited: air quality, safe and sustainable water resources, sustainable and healthy communities, and chemical safety.
To increase the number of Phase I grants awarded to institutions who have not traditionally received awards, EPA intends to use approximately 50% of the total amount of funding available under this announcement for grants to “new awardees.” This percentage is only an estimate and is subject to change based on funding levels, the quality of applications received, and other applicable considerations
For this reason, EPA strongly encourages all eligible applicants, including minority serving institutions (MSIs), to apply under this opportunity.
Strategic Program Goals can be found at https://www.epa.gov/system/files/documents/2021-08/19th-annual-p3-phase-i-rfa-final.pdf#page=7.
