$32 Million Invested into STEM Training Diversity

The Energy Department announces 41 awards for research opportunities.

The U.S. Department of Energy announced that 37 institutions would receive awards to support the education of underrepresented groups in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The awards total $32 million in funding for training and mentorship programs at historically Black, Hispanic, Asian, and indigenous colleges and universities.

“The next generation of American scientists and engineers will be charged with solving some of the world’s most vexing problems, and that group will only be stronger for this initiative’s efforts to help ensure there are pathways to the STEM fields for previously underrepresented groups,” said Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the energy secretary as she collaborates with educational institutions to increase STEM training.
  • For U.S. educators as they promote math, science, and engineering programs for American students.
