The National Energy Technology Laboratory will host a webinar at 1:30 p.m. ET Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2021, discussing research and development opportunities available within the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy and Carbon Management’s (FECM) Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Other Minority Institutions (HBCU-OMI) Program.
The program seeks to increase participation in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for students from underrepresented and structurally marginalized communities. Attendees of the webinar will gain information on how FECM’s program can strongly benefit students and young professionals from minority communities and open pathways to success in STEM fields.
Representatives from minority-serving institutions (MSIs) are strongly encouraged to attend and discover NETL’s pivotal role in FECM’s HBCU-OMI Program. To be considered an MSI, an institution’s minority student enrollment must be 50% or higher. Click here to view the eligibility matrix for 2021.
At the webinar, NETL experts will share valuable advice on conducting business with the U.S. government, including tips on how to dissect funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) and general guidelines for writing an effective proposal. Additional information on NETL’s engagement with MSIs and its mission to deliver solutions for an environmentally sustainable energy future will also be provided.
Between 2010 and 2020, the HBCU-OMI Program funded 42 awards totaling $11.8 million dollars to advance the technical skills of minority students studying at MSIs, while making meaningful contributions in FECM-related research. Learn more about NETL’s involvement in this critical program here.
