The sun grant initiative

The Sun Grant Initiative

  • Biobased energy research and education

  • National

    • Land Grant Universities in every state

    • Partnerships with federal agencies to address national priorities

  • Regional

    • Biomass is regional and site-specific

    • Address national issues in regional context

    • Leverage and coordinate state efforts

  • National

  • Centers

  • Regional Competitive Grants

    • National priorities from an interagency panel:

      • DOT / USDA / DOE / DOD / EPA

    • Priorities addressed in regional context

    • Request for proposals issued from Centers

      • About 100 of proposals received per region

      • Reviews complete by July
