DOE EPSCoR State Laboratory Partnership Awards encourage collaborations between researchers at the seven research institutions and Federal Laboratory personnel. Alabama has three ongoing projects. The University of Alabama was awarded a 2011 grant in the amount of $497K.
An Alabama DoE EPSCoR Implementation Grant was awarded in August 2009. These awards consist of a research program and a human resource development program. UA is serving as the lead institution while the research cluster is headquartered at AU and includes researchers at UA, USA, TU, and Auburn/Montgomery.
