DOE allocates another $327M to labs, schools

Published on August 5th, 2009 | By: pwray@ceramics.org

In its final round of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act-based awards, the DOE says it is going to provide money for science research projects at 10 federal labs and schools. For the record, this latest announcement brings the total amount of ARRA funding coming out of the DOE to $1.6 billion, all that Congress set aside for the agency under this bill. Of the $327 million, DOE is going to earmark about one-third to universities, nonprofit organizations and private firms, and the rest to DOE’s national labs. In particular, $164.7 million has already been set aside for the following projects:
