WASHINGTON, DC  - The Department of Energy announced today that six projects will receive nearly $2.4 million in funding under the University Coal Research Program, the Department's longest-running student-teacher research grant initiative.

"I am pleased to announce the projects that have been selected as the result of the call to U.S. colleges and universities for proposals to conduct coal research," Jeffrey D. Jarrett, Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy said. "Tapping the creativity and talents of America's young scientists to investigate long-term solutions for clean and efficient use of our nation's abundant coal resources reiterates the Department's commitment to overall basic science."
