$30 Million Awarded to Minority Serving STEM Education

Energy Department issues grants supporting the partnership program.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced $30 million in grants to support Minority Serving Institutions (MSI) in South Carolina, Tennessee, and Washington. The grants are distributed by the Minority Serving Institutions Partnership Program, which helps colleges and universities give underrepresented communities better access to quality science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) programs.

“Leveraging the full potential of America’s best and brightest means including students from every pocket of the nation, and of all races and ethnicities,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm. “With today’s investments, DOE is following through with our previously announced commitments to MSIs to remove barriers and unlock opportunities for millions of Americans.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Energy Department officials as they disseminate funding to support STEM education.
  • For Secretary Granholm to look to the Lord for discernment is assisting underserved communities.
  • For the students who will receive assistance as they learn in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
