US Department of Energy announces $1.5 million student funding for five projects

The US Department of Energy (DOE) has announced $1.5 million in funding for five projects that will advance key clean-hydrogen technologies while growing the skills and knowledge of science and engineering students at Minority Serving Institutions.

The projects will engage with ’emerging minority talent’ to reduce the costs of technologies for producing and using clean hydrogen and improve materials used throughout the hydrogen value chain.

Advances made in these projects will aims to achieve the Hydrogen Shot goal of reducing the cost of clean hydrogen to $1 per 1 kg in one decade and support President Biden’s vision for a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.

The projects will also give participating students direct exposure to cutting-edge research, which will include engagement with DOE national laboratory researchers supporting their work and may include site visits to the labs.
