Reaching a New Energy Sciences Workforce (RENEW) - Earth and Environmental Systems

The DOE SC program in BER hereby announces its interest in receiving applications for RENEW grants that will target building capacity in climate and environmental science-relevant programs, particularly at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and minority-serving institutions (MSIs) .


may be requested to support experiential training, mentoring, and institutional capacity building activities in partnership with DOE national laboratory Scientific Focus Areas (SFAs) supported within BER’s Earth and Environmental Systems Sciences Division (EESSD).

BER has a goal to broaden and diversify institutional representation in the EESSD portfolio.

BER recognizes there are many academic scientists at institutions not currently supported by BER who have limited familiarity with EESSD programs and research support; BER further recognizes that such barriers to engagement in research and student training can be surmounted by fostering partnerships and collaborations with BER-supported SFA research at the DOE national laboratories.

To help provide technical assistance to build capacity and achieve the goal of broadening institutional participation, this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) will provide training and research funding for institutions to:
1) develop new partnerships with the BER-supported EESSD SFAs at the DOE national laboratories, to enable sustained undergraduate and graduate student participation in EESSD-relevant research; 2) facilitate undergraduate and graduate student participation in EESSD research programmatic and user facility outreach and training activities; and 3) foster the development of climate and environmental science training capacity and research at under-represented institutions.
