This notice announces the availability of funds and solicits applications from eligible entities for creation and management of the Student Program for Environmental Excellence in Design (SPEED).

This project has two components.

The first focuses on development of a graduate level research


training and support program that involves a research partnership between EPA and eligible entities to continue advanced engine research and development by providing federal funding support for graduate level students.

The recipient will work with EPA’s National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory (NVFEL) to develop collaborative research relationships between EPA NVFEL staff and engineering students and faculty in this program.The second component of this project is to design and manage a program to introduce and motivate undergraduate level students to consider the professional pursuit of technical careers with an interdisciplinary perspective that focuses on improving public health and the environment and provides related training to such students.In particular, the SPEED aims to increase students’ awareness and understanding of the environmental benefits stemming from increasing fuel efficiency, reducing carbon intensity in transportation fuels, and reducing emissions in advanced vehicles.

The SPEED will provide opportunities and financial assistance to eligible entities to collaborate with EPA staff and to provide graduate and undergraduate students with laboratory experiences within EPA’s National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory (NVFEL) in the science, technology and engineering disciplines.
