In support of the university’s operational excellence and resource stewardship sustainability goals and strategic plan, Ohio State departments may apply for up to $10,000 toward the incremental cost of a new electric vehicle (EV) and up to $20,000 toward the incremental cost of a new compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle. This funding is made available through the Ohio State Sustainability Fund after recommendation from the President and Provost’s Council on Sustainability and will be distributed to departments by Transportation and Traffic Management.
The U.S. DOE provides supplemental awards to outstanding graduate students to support part of their thesis research to be conducted at a DOE laboratory/facility. The research opportunity is expected to advance the graduate students’ overall doctoral thesis while providing access to the expertise, resources and capabilities available at the DOE laboratories/facilities. Applications are due May 15.
